    Police: Man arrested after shooting at home intruder

    A Peoria man was arrested after what authorities described Thursday as a reckless exchange of gunfire with a man who broke into his home.

    One of the rounds blasted through the wall of a house across the street, endangering four adults and three children inside the home, police said.

    The shooting suspect, Luis H. Olivas Jr., 24, admitted that he fired through a bedroom window with closed curtains, said Mike Tellef, a Peoria police spokesman.




    "Luis admitted that he could not see out of the house and had no idea where the rounds were going," Tellef said.

    The gunfire erupted early Sunday after an intruder broke through a front window at Olivas' home in the 7100 block of West Hatcher Road, he said.

    When confronted by Olivas, the intruder began firing at the homeowner, Tellef said. Olivas retrieved a weapon and returned the fire, he added.

    The intruder fled and has not been caught, Tellef said.

    During a search of Olivas' home, investigators seized 170 pounds of marijuana, and other contraband, Tellef added.

    Olivas was arrested Sunday and booked in a Maricopa County jail on seven counts of endangerment, possession of marijuana for sale and misconduct involving weapons.

    Neverminding the staggering quantities weed, what was the guy supposed to do? Duck and cover while an armed intruder shoots at him and hope the cops show up a few milliseconds after some neighbor finally calls the police?

    I'm wondering if the guy was arrested because the police found no evidence of the alleged intruder?

    More likely for this

    I don't know how the laws are there, but I'm betting you wouldn't get charged for returning fire at someone even if they had exited the house. However not knowing what you are even shooting at that is a big :nono:

    I guess if you don't have a target you can't miss

    I think he was more dumbfounded at the massive quantity of glaucoma medication.
