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
