Deputies with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched around 12:17 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 to a call of a burglary at a home in the 5800 block of Highway 82 Spur in Commerce. The woman told deputies she heard someone trying to enter the house through a window. She went to the home’s back door and saw a male standing in the area.
“The homeowner was armed, and advised the suspect not enter the house,” the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. However, the woman heard glass breaking from the upper level of the house and fired two shots in the direction of the man the sheriff’s office added.
