Helena-West Helena (KATV) — A homeowner scared off four would-be home invaders when he fired his gun into the ceiling on Halloween night.
Police say four men knocked on the victims' door, saying, "trick or treat." When the homeowner answered the door to hand out candy, one of the men pointed a shotgun in the owner's face. The four males then forced their way into the home.
The homeowner grabbed his own gun and fired a shot into the ceiling. The men ran out of the house, dropping a shotgun and a rifle, both of which were recovered by police.
Police say the couple was shaken but were not hurt in the home invasion. Authorities are searching for the four men.
