St. Joseph Police are investigating after an attempted home invasion Monday night.
According to Sgt. Steve McClintick with the department, around 10:30 p.m. Monday, a suspect entered a home in the 1100 block of South 11th Street. McClintick said a resident of the house was awake and chased the unarmed suspect out of the house. Another suspect, who was outside the house, fired shots towards the house as they left in what was described as a dark colored car with tinted windows. McClintick said a structure and vehicle in the backyard were hit by gunfire, but no one was injured and nothing was taken from the house.
The suspect who entered the house was described as a white male in his late teens or early 20s and it is believed that there were two more people in the car, in addition to the suspect who shot at the house.
No one is in custody at this time and anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 238-TIPS.
