EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Harrison County 911 operators received a call regarding a home burglary in progress with shots fired in the 7300 Block of Red Oak, Hallsville, Texas at approximately 11:30 a.m. The owner of the residence stated he came home to find a vehicle backed up in his carport and 2 black males inside his residence.
He exited his vehicle and one of the suspects began firing a .22 caliber gun at the owner of the residence. He exchanged gunfire with his weapon, which he had in his truck, and the suspects fled on foot heading east from the residence through an open field.
