 A 78-year old man fought back against an intruder Wednesday, firing five shots with a handgun before the burglar drove away, according to deputies…. He heard his alarm go off inside his home … then saw a flashlight in his living room [and retrieved his gun]…. The intruder shined a flashlight in his face to try to blur his vision…. Ashton chased the suspect through the kitchen and into the garage. The intruder then hopped into the couple’s 2011 Toyota Prius and threw it into reverse…. The suspect drove about half a mile on flat tires and then abandoned the car. A K-9 team was unable to locate the intruder after about 40 minutes.
