A Macon man fired a gun at a burglar he discovered in his Stanislaus Circle home Saturday morning, according to Macon police.
The 56-year-old man told police he returned home about 11 a.m. and found the front door open. He fired a gun at the burglar in his house, and the burglar fell through a glass door, according to a police report.
It’s unclear whether the shot hit the burglar. He was last seen running toward Vineville Avenue, according to the report.
The resident told police he found several items under his carport and a trash can that had been emptied with apparent plans to use it for hauling the loot.
