Glendale teen shoots at intruder coming in doggie door

A 17-year-old girl shot at a man who tried to break into her Glendale home through the doggie door, police said Tuesday.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, Glendale officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress at a home near 71st Avenue and McLellan Road, Glendale police Sgt. Brent Coombs said.

The 17-year-old told police she heard her door bell ring but did not answer.

A short time later, she heard someone go over her gate to the backyard. She then saw a younger man reach through the home's doggie door and attempt to unlock the latch, Coombs said.

The 17-year-old armed herself and fired a shot at the doggie door, Coombs said. The suspect fled, although it's unknown if he was injured, Coombs said.

Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate the man.

The suspect is described as a Black man in his late teens or early 20s. He is estimated at about 5-foot, 6-inches to 5-foot, 8-inches with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a navy blue sweatshirt with a hood, blue jeans and a wool winter cap.

    Good on her for not being a victim!
    Too bad she missed.

    Good for her, but someone needs to have a stern talk with the dog.

      :clap

    Actually, it's probably for the best:  the perp probably won't try that MOE again, and the girl doesn't have to deal with the hassle of having shot someone.

    Yep.  Looks like it's time to lose the lap-warmer, and buy a Rottweiler. >:D

    my dog would have been sitting behind the guy wagging his tail waiting to come inside. I love him but he's 70 lbs of useless guard dog.

    Interesting how in other media outlets, describing the hoodlum's matter-of-fact ethnicity would have been a faux-pas.


    Good for her.  Kaso is right, it is nice that she didnt actually have to go through the ramifications of shooting someone.  With regards to the kind of people that do those things, they have it coming---but for the girl's sake, it's good that nothing actually happened.
    CaliforniaThere are many like it, but this one is mine.

    when I have early shifts or early On call position (3am call suck) the wife sleeps upstairs. Snoop understands this to mean cuddle time curls up next to me an puts his head on my shoulder. He's a damn good dog.
