A Hermitage, Tenn., man returned home to his residence early Saturday morning to find one man standing next to his house and another climbing a fence out of his backyard. At the sight of the homeowner, the two suspects took off running.
The resident followed them in his vehicle and yelled at them to stop. At that point, one of the suspects turned and aimed a gun at the driver, who pulled out his own gun and fired in self-defense. One of the men stumbled, but they continued to flee.
The police were called out and searched the area along with K-9 units, but the suspects never turned up. Officers believe a vehicle and a shed were broken into.
