    Lexington homeowner shoots at home invasion suspect

    A Lexington man fired shots at a suspect who broke into his home early Wednesday morning.

    Police say a man kicked in the front door of a home along Republic Court around 3 a.m. and entered the house. The home owner woke up when he heard the noise and grabbed his gun. He says that when he went into the hall and flipped on the lights, he saw the suspect standing there. The homeowner fired a few rounds and the suspect ran out of the house. Police say they donít think the suspect was hit. The homeowner says he saw another man running with the suspect as he fled.

    The suspect didnít get away with anything in the house.
    Investigators say the suspect was wearing a dark blue jacket, possibly a jean jacket, dark blue jeans and a bandana on his head.
    If you have any information, call Lexington police at (859) 258-3600.

    Wow! The home owner fired several rounds at someone standing in the hallway? I'd say he needs some range time.
    Glad the home owner was unharmed.

    You know those bumpers that they put in the gutters at the bowling alley so kids don't throw gutter balls. I wonder if he could put them up in his hallway so his rounds will go where they should? At least he was armed and did the best he could, he did at least run them off!

    He may have been more scared than the crook.

    Hey, that's not too far from me. I can't imagine being that close and not hitting someone but then again I have never been in that situation and maybe I wouldn't had done any better; I bet his heart was going a million miles an hour. I'm glad he did succeed in running them off and that he didn't get hurt though. I bet the guys that did that will think twice before breaking into another house. I agree with retsupt99, he definitely needs to get in some more range time. Lexington is getting a new range that I hear is going to be really nice so maybe he should take advantage of that - I apologize if that came off sounding like an endorsement...I'm not affiliated with said range in any shape, form or manner.

    Should have also said the suspect not only had a bandanna and blue jeans but had two ton blue jeans..... seat was brown and slightly damp.
