One Magoffin County man could face burglary charges after police say he stole from someone's home and then allegedly fired a gun at the homeowner.
The Magoffin County Sheriff says Douglas Caldwell broke into Harlan Rowe's home in Salyersville on Thursday night and tried to steal several different things.
Shelia Balesdrieri, who also lives in Rowes home, says things turned violent when the suspect started running away.
Balesdrieri says the suspect got halfway down the gravel travel when he started firing a gun in their direction.
But Harlan Rowe was also armed.
Harlan ran in the house and got his gun and I think its right to protect your family and house and everything you've got, said Balesdrieri.
One of Rowe's bullets ended up hitting Caldwell in the leg and he still got away---but not for long.

This happened in KY ...
This story is fishy
HE shot at them as he was running away, and THEN the home ran into the house to get his gun and then came back to shoot him?
Wasn’t he halfway down the block by then?
Not that I minds- I am sorry he only hit a leg
In today's world, that's assuming a lot.
“Officials with the Magoffin County Sheriffs Office quickly located Caldwell and took him to the hospital for his injur(y).”
Only thing that bugs me about this story. Why should the police have to double as an ambulance service?
This is the right that the left wants desperately to take away from us. In the leftist world view, the “downtrodden” “oppressed” person should just march right in and take whatever is “rightfully” his.
