The homeowner said the man told him “Mike sent me,” and when he told the man to leave, the man laughed and walked away from the door where two more men were located.
The homeowner stated he fired two shots from a shotgun in the direction of the three men, and they went behind the house and hid behind a tree. He stated they then came back to the front of the house and were on the driveway, when he fired two more shots. He stated the men then yelled and ran away.
