ROME- On Sunday, Rome Police responded to a report of shots fired at 608 Croton Street.

Police describe the alleged suspect as a black male, wearing a facial covering.

They say he entered the upstairs bedroom window by removing a window air conditioning unit. This bedroom was occupied by one adult male, one adult female, and a three-year-old child.

Once inside, police say the suspect hit the female resident several times in the head with a handgun and began searching the home.

They say a neighbor became aware of the incident and retrieved a shot gun from his home and entered the victim’s residence.

Once inside, they say the neighbor chased the suspect through the residence and fired one round in the suspect’s direction. Police don't believe the suspect was hit.

They say the suspect fled the residence through a second story window. The neighbor then exited the residence and found the suspect fleeing to a dark colored SUV (possibly gray Dodge) waiting on Ashland Ave. directly behind the residence.

Police say that's when the suspect turned toward the neighbor and the neighbor fired a second round toward the suspect.

Again, police do not believe the suspect was hit.

They say the vehicle may be damaged. The suspect fled in the vehicle.

This investigation is ongoing.

Please call Detective Sharon Rood of the Rome Police Department at (315)339-7716.
