Tyler Home Burglarized; Homeowner’s Teenage Son Fires Shots at Suspect

A suspect who broke into a home at 1204 Barbara Street in Tyler early Wednesday morning escaped after the homeowner’s 18-year-old son fired several shots at the suspect as he fled through a broken window.

The female homeowner told police that she and her children were asleep when she heard a loud crash in the front room of the residence.  She got up to investigate and found the front window broken out. The suspect had thrown a bicycle through the front window in an attempt to gain entry into the residence.

The homeowner‘s son got up, grabbed a firearm and went to the front window that was damaged.  The son observed a black male suspect wearing all black and carrying a duffle bag standing in the front yard near the window. The son fired three rounds into the front yard causing the suspect to flee from the area.

Police checked the area and failed to locate the suspect and found no sign that anyone was struck by the gunfire.

Anyone with information about the suspect involved in this crime is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department, at 903-531-1000, or Crimestoppers at 903-597-CUFF (903-597-2833). Crimestoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charges filed against the suspect in this case or any felony case.
