On Thursday, September 6, at 4:41 AM, Lincoln Police were dispatched to the 1200 block of Short 11th Street, Lincoln, in reference to a subject attempting to break in to a residence.

Officers arrived to find a male suspect had damaged a vehicle in front of the residence and thrown a brick through the front window. The suspect then attempted to force the door open to the residence and the female homeowner, whom was legally armed with a pistol, gave notice to the suspect to stop as she had a gun. The suspect continued to try to force entry and homeowner subsequently fired the pistol to stop the entry into home. There is no indication the suspect was wounded and suspect fled on foot.

There was reported damage to several vehicles and residences in that area along with a vehicle that was set on fire. Officers also investigated several reported criminal damage to property reports South from Short 11th Street at the Christian Village, 600blk of S Main St, 700blk of S Washington, 1000blk of 1st Street, 800blk of 2nd Street, 400blk of 1st Street, and a subsequent call from a homeowner in the 900blk of S Kickapoo at 6:25 AM that the suspect was running east from that location.
