Homeowners fired handgun
TYLER - It happened at 533 Bandera Street a little after 1 this morning.
According to Tyler P.D., a husband and wife couple inside the Bandera Street home heard someone trying to kick in their front door.
Police say that's when the couple decided to arm themselves.
When the door was finally kicked in, police say the couple saw two people walk in and fire a shot.
Police say the homeowners then fired back with a handgun and the would-be burglars left.
"If anybody in the neighborhood has seen anything around 1:25 a.m., or heard the noise, please give us a call. You may have seen a vehicle leave the area - that may be important to our follow-up investigation," said Sgt. Bill Goecking with Tyler P.D.
Tyler P.D. says they don't have any sort of description of what that vehicle may look like.
