Washington County deputies say a homeowner shot at an intruder who broke into their Cooper Mountain home Friday afternoon.

At about 12:35 p.m. deputies responded to the 9300 block of Southwest 171st Avenue. During the investigation, deputies learned that a man entered a home in a possible burglary attempt and was confronted by a homeowner.

According to deputies, the homeowner found the intruder in the kitchen where the intruder was reportedly armed with a knife. The homeowner retrieved a handgun and fired one round at the intruder, causing the man to run away.
