A Spokane homeowner fired shots at burglary suspects fleeing his property Tuesday evening in an SUV.

The man said he found a group of thieves running from his garage in the 5800 block of West Houston Avenue with armfuls of goods. They loaded into an SUV and were driving away when he fired his handgun at them.

One of the bullets struck a neighbor’s house, according to police reports. No one was injured.

The homeowner told investigators that he might have hit the SUV on the driver’s side. There were no reports of gunshot victims at area hospitals.
