Cape Cod Homeowner Shoots At Arsonist

posted on November 7, 2015

After being awakened by what he thought was someone breaking into his home around 2 a.m. Thursday morning, a Falmouth, Mass., homeowner discovered a male suspect setting his house on fire. He chased the suspect and fired two shots at him, driving him off, police told the Boston Globe.

The man’s wife used a garden hose to extinguish the fire, which had burned a three-foot section of the house’s siding. The man who fired the shots reportedly had a license to carry a firearm. Police found no blood at the scene, and said that no one with gunshot wounds had turned up at any local hospitals following the incident.

Further investigation revealed that the brake lines on the homeowner’s car had been severed, and a door of the home had been wedged shut from the outside. Police are still looking for the suspect.
