Lexington police responded to a robbery Friday afternoon on Jacks Creek Road.

The homeowner says someone came in the side door of his house, and he thought it was a farm worker. It turned out to be a man wearing a gray bandana with a gun.

The robber told the homeowner to get on the ground before taking money from his pockets. The robber was looking to steal firearms, but the victim was able to convince the robber to not take the weapons.

When the robber drove away in a white four-door vehicle, the victim grabbed a gun and fired shots at him. It is unknown if the suspect was hit.

Police have yet to arrest the suspect.
