Homeowner and Burglars Get Into Gun Battle

Shots rang out during a home invasion in Jessamine County on Wednesday morning as the homeowner confronted three men.

The homeowner, who lives off of KY 169 near the Keene community, says he was watching TV when he heard a noise upstairs.

He says when he went to investigate, he saw two men ransacking his house. He told them he had a gun and they ran out of the home.

The homeowner says he grabbed his gun and fired a warning shot into the ground, but one of the burglars turned and shot back at him. The man says the burglar used a gun he stole from the home.

After a few minutes of exchanging gunfire, the suspects hopped in a car and drove away.

Police are looking for three men in an older model black Oldsmobile. The car had a busted out window, covered in plastic and may have some bullet holes in it after the gun battle.

Police say they're following up on several leads, but so far there have been no arrests.
