ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – Police are investigating after a 77-year-old Ann Arbor man fired a shot at an intruder inside his home late Wednesday afternoon.

Ann Arbor police officers were called to a home on Arbordale Street – near W. Stadium Boulevard and Liberty Street – around 6 p.m. Wednesday on a reported home invasion.

The man told police he was in his bedroom when he heard what sounded like someone trying to open his screen door. He then saw the suspect in his kitchen and pulled out a gun and fired one shot at the suspect.

The suspect, who was not hit by the shot, jumped out a kitchen window, which Ann Arbor police officials say he forcefully opened to get inside the house. Authorities say the victim did not know the suspect.

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 20s, approximately 5-foot-10, with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt.

No one was hurt in the incident, and nothing was taken from the house, officials said. Officers were unable to locate the suspect and the incident remains an active and open investigation.

Ann Arbor police are asking anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or has a doorbell camera that may have captured the suspect to call AAPD at 734-794-6920 or email the tip line at tips@a2gov.org.
