Neighbor Shoots At, Captures Burglar

Greene County, Missouri

From January 18, 2008 Springfield [Missouri] News-Leader:
A man reportedly burglarizing an apartment Thursday morning in an area off Battlefield Road was captured after being shot at by a resident and chased down by a police dog and several law enforcement officials, according to Capt. Randy Gibson of the Greene County Sheriff's Department.


The incident began around 10:30 a.m. at the Valley apartments just off West Battlefield when someone staying home sick awoke to the sound of a window being pried open in another room, according to Gibson.

The suspect fled back out the window after the resident saw him, according to Gibson.

A neighbor then apparently went after the suspect, firing shots at him, Gibson said.

No one was hurt from the gunshots.

"There was a lot of chaos and commotion."
