Cartersville GA man charged with burglary after victim shot at him
A Cartersville man narrowly escaped injury — or even death — when a female homeowner shot at him after he’d entered her locked sun room and began going through her possessions before being arrested by police March 25.
Police responded to a 911 call from a woman on Lakeview Drive in Cartersville at 4:31 a.m. Monday, telling them a burglar was still in her home, according to the police report.
“[The victim] said that she shot at the subject one time and missed,” the police report stated. “Upon arrival, I made contact with the male suspect, Aaron Lee, who was standing in [the victim’s] sun room porch. I saw Aaron form outside the glass door and windows. Aaron appeared to be going through [her] belongings that she had on a table. I announced to Aaron that I was a deputy with the Sheriff’s office. I gave Aaron loud verbal commands at gun point to put his hands up and exit the residence slowly.”
Lee was then detained after backup arrived on scene.
“I asked Aaron what he was doing in the house,” the report stated. “I asked Aaron if he knew whose house it was and he said no. Aaron kept giving me incoherent answers to the questions I would ask. Aaron appeared to be intoxicated with some kind of drug.”
The victim told the deputy she had been asleep when she heard someone bang twice on the locked door to her sun room porch. She said after a third bang, the door came open and she saw a shadow.
“She immediately went to grab her firearm,” the report stated, adding the victim had told Lee to get out of the house “multiple times.”
After firing one shot at Lee, the victim hid in the hallway and waited for police to arrive. She told the deputy Lee mumbled something incoherent after the shot.
“I observed the bullet hole that had struck the door frame to the sun room,” the deputy wrote, adding the victim said the bullet caused about $200 worth of damage to home.
Lee was was charged with burglary-forced entry and transported to the Bartow County Detention Center without incident.
