    Another Home Invasion

    Homeowner shoots at 2 intruders, police say - Midstate PA Local News, Weather, Sports & Entertainment - PennLive.com

    New Cumberland police are investigating a break-in at a home in the 200 block of Geary Avenue during which the homeowner struggled with a pair of intruders and fired two shots at them as they fled.

    Police said neither intruder was hit. The homeowner, who was not identified, suffered a minor cut to his stomach during the scuffle and was examined at the scene by ambulance personnel.

    Police said the homeowner was asleep around 12:24 a.m. Wednesday when he was awakened by a commotion downstairs..

    A scuffle broke out in the kitchen, and the homeowner fired two shots from a handgun as the intruders were running out a back door, police said.

    Both burglars were described as being about 6 feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds. Police said one was white and one was black.

    Nothing was reported missing. Police said a woman's handbag was found dumped on the floor and kitchen counters and drawers had been opened. The intruders forced open a back door, police said.

    Police are investigating whether the break-in is related to one four days earlier at the same residence. In that case, the homeowner got up to get a drink around 12:30 a.m. and encountered a man in the home.

    Anyone with information may call police at 717-774-0400.
    Good for the homeowner, but not sure about firing as the intruders are fleeing. That definitely wouldn't play well here in CT. Also, two home invasions in 4 days? I think I would get a mobile alarm/defense system such as a GSD, Rottie, or Pit to give me a little early warning.

    +1 on the dog. Mine is pretty useless (just lays around most of the time), but she barks at every little sound she hears which is better than any burglar alarm. My response time is a lot faster than the P.D.
