Charges are pending against a man who police say was attempting to break into a home and then got into a fight at another residence.

Just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, police were called to the 300 block of CC Camp Road for a reported burglary in progress. Officers were advised shots had been fired.

The reporting party told the dispatcher he had fired a gun into the floor as a warning shot to scare away the burglar, police said.

Officers arrived on the scene and found a broken window and blood. The reporting party told police he had heard someone kicking the window and glass breaking.

At that point, he fired the gun into the floor and the suspect left the scene.

Based on the blood found at the scene, police said it was clear the suspect was cut and bleeding when the window was broken. Officers tracked the blood to the 300 block of Rolling Meadows Lane where it was reported a fight had broken out.

The suspect from the burglary had been involved in a fight and was taken to Mercy Hospital Washington. Police contacted the man at the hospital.

The man, a 41-year-old Pacific resident, told police he had broken the glass. The man said he was looking for the resident on Rolling Meadows.

When he eventually found who he was looking for, the suspect got into a brief fight. Police said he fell and hit his hand and had to be taken to the hospital.
