Man shot in home by intruder

A Frisco man received minor injuries after being shot in the arm by an intruder after arriving home from work Thursday afternoon.

Steven Geddie, 24, told police that he grabbed a 12 gauge shotgun when he heard someone breaking into the rear door of his home after arriving home from work in the 8400 block of Hickory Street shortly after 6 p.m.

“Initial reports show that he and another subject exchanged gunshots,” Frisco police Sgt. Gerald Meadors said.

Police said that the intruder used a small caliber pistol to fire two rounds at Geddie, who then fired one round at the intruder. Geddie suffered a minor injury to the left arm but refused to be transported to the hospital.

Police said Geddie described the suspect as a Hispanic or Oriental male wearing a blue Dallas Cowboys cap, grey and white jacket, jeans, and a red bandana over his face.

The motive for the shooting is unknown, and the incident is still under investigation.
