Homeowner fires gun, scares off intruder

Deputies arrested a suspected burglar early this morning after he fled from a homeowner who fired a gun.

Deputies received a report of burglary in the 16400 block of East Maplewood Drive at 4:32 a.m., said Capt. Brice Moomaw of the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office.

The male homeowner woke up, went downstairs and confronted a burglar. As he called 911, the suspect ran outside. The homeowner followed him, firing a gun into the ground, Moomaw said.

The suspect then ran about three blocks to a nearby field where deputies arrested him. There were no reported injuries.

The suspect's name has not been released.
