Chesterfield Police have charged a man for chasing after people who were breaking into his car, and subsequently shooting his gun into a nearby house.
Police responded to the 5700 block of Willow Branch Road around 10:40 p.m. Monday for shots fired.
“When (police) arrived, a community member told them that he had just confronted two subjects who had entered onto his property and were breaking into his vehicles,” Chesterfield police said. “The man said that he chased the subjects and fired his firearm while in pursuit.”
One of those gunshots hit a home in the 7400 block of Summer Tree Drive. Police say that no-one was injured in the incident.
Police have not identified the suspects, but they were found and charged with unlawful entry and larceny. The homeowner, who also hasn’t been identified, faces a reckless handling of a firearm charge.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
