Oshtemo Township homeowner fires shots at burglars

An armed homeowner in Oshtemo Township scared off a pair of burglars earlier this week when he fired two shots from his gun, police said Tuesday.

No one was injured, according to a press release from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office.

Police said two suspects broke into the house in the 7000 block of West H Avenue Monday afternoon. They were confronted by the armed homeowner, who fired two shots before the suspects fled in a small vehicle.

Deputies located the vehicle and arrested one of the suspects, an 18-year-old man, lodging him on home invasion charges at the Kalamazoo County Jail.

Police continue to look for the second suspect, who was only described as a "small individual with longer hair," the press release said.
