Investigators say it started when Emmanuel Lane, 28, broke into a home about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 3700 block of Sturgeon in Sherwood Forest. The victim says she awoke to someone yelling inside her home. She says she stayed in her bedroom until she heard the front door close and the person leave.
Police say minutes later, a neighbor awoke to his girlfriend saying someone was in their home. He told officers he ran to the front room and found Lane inside the front door screaming and putting his hands near his jacket. The man says that’s when he fired a shot, striking Lane.
