A Sacramento man fired four shots at home invaders apparently trying to get his medicinal marijuana, Sacramento police said.
The intruders fired at the man in return, but didn't hit the resident, police said. There was no evidence that the home invaders were hit either, police said.
A police summary of the event stated that the man was inside his Oak Park home about 11 p.m. Monday when he heard someone trying to kick in his back door.
The resident armed himself with a shotgun from his bedroom and walked toward the back door as it was forced open.
The resident pointed the shotgun out the door toward the intruders, firing four rounds.
The home invaders returned fire and then fled through the backyard.
Police learned that the man had a medicinal marijuana card and was growing plants inside his home.
Police believe the intruders were after the marijuana.
