TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police said a homeowner awakened by his burglar alarm found two people inside his garage early Wednesday.

It happened in the 3200 block of East 68th Street just before 5 a.m.

Officers said the homeowner got a gun then surprised a man and a young girl in the garage. The man ran away and he fired several shots but officers don't believe he was hit.

The shots woke up neighbor Amy Hoagland, who said, "I don't think it matters where you live anymore. I think, no matter where you are, people are desperate, or foolish or sick - whatever - they're gonna do what they're gonna do. And you have to protect everything.

The homeowner held the 16-year-old girl at gunpoint until police arrived and took her to jail. Police didn't find the man.

Officers said the homeowner was not injured but was shaken up by the incident.
