Burglars who were confronted by a Pasadena resident Monday night fired a shot into a wall before fleeing, Anne Arundel County police said.
The resident told police he, his wife and his grandson were asleep in the home in the 1800 block of Poplar Ridge Road when they heard noises inside the house around 11:40 p.m. The man left his bedroom to investigate, yelled that he was armed with a shotgun, and the burglars fired a shot into a wall then ran away, police said. No one was injured.
The three suspects stole a laptop computer and some other undetermined items, police said. The victim could only describe two of the suspects by their clothing and said they were male. Police responded with a K-9 unit and a helicopter but were unable to locate the suspects.
