A suspected burglar was shot at by a DeKalb County homeowner Tuesday morning.

Around 8:25 a.m., the homeowner received a call from her neighbor saying that someone was breaking into her Lee Street home. The neighbor also called police.

The homeowner returned home to find two teens inside.

Police said one suspect fled out the back and the other one tackled the homeowner as he tried to escape.

The two struggled and police said the homeowner was able to get a firearm she had in the home.

She fired several rounds at the suspect as he ran.

Police arrived quickly and were able to locate both suspects and take them into custody. No one was injured.

The suspects arrested were 16 and 17 years old.

Because of their ages, their names have not been released.
