Police: Victim fires at burglar

A Franklin man stood at the top of the stairs of his apartment and fired his shotgun down the staircase at a burglar during the second break-in on consecutive nights.

Franklin police are now looking for the burglar who broke into the apartment in the 1600 block of Crescent Street about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The resident, Jacob Hayes, 27, first called police Monday evening to report that someone had broken into his apartment the previous night and stolen a wallet containing cash and a driver’s license, Franklin Police Lt. Kerry Atwood said. The person had pushed open the back door of the home in order to get in, Atwood said.
