A suspected burglar is dead after breaking into an east Macon home Monday.
About 10 a.m., someone knocked on the front door of 152 Bradstone Circle and rang the doorbell. Moments later, a woman in the back of the home heard the door kicked in, Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said during a news conference.
The woman came out and yelled at the two suspects. They ran, and one of the suspects shot back at the house but hit his partner instead, Davis said.
“I’d much rather see one burglar shoot another burglar than an innocent homeowner,” he said.
The shooter is still on the run. Descriptions of the man and vehicle were not immediately available but are expected to be released soon.
