Woman shoots at suspects breaking into Tempe home

TEMPE, AZ - Police say a resident fired shots at two suspects who broke into a Tempe home on Thursday.

Tempe police spokesman Mike Pooley said a woman heard a knock at the door of her home near McClintock Drive and Guadalupe Road and thought it sounded odd.

Pooley said she went to the garage for a gun and by the time she got back two people were in her home.

She shot at both of them, but it's unclear if either one was struck, Pooley said.

Pooley said two suspects are in custody and two more got away.

The suspects are described as black males and Pooley said police are looking for a black Chrysler 300 with Alberta license plates.

Pooley said this home invasion is related to another robbery earlier today. He said this is a growing trend in which a suspect knocks on the door and if no one answers they break down the door.
