MILLINGTON, Md.- Maryland State Police say the victim of a weekend home invasion fired gunshots at the suspect, who remains at-large after fleeing the scene.

The incident reportedly occurred shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 at a home on the 31000 block of River Road in Millington.

Troopers met with the victim who stated that an unknown male suspect broke into the home before assaulting him and fleeing the scene on foot.

According to police, an initial investigation revealed that the suspect forced access through a screen door located at the rear of the home. Police said the investigation also revealed that the victim fired two rounds from his registered Davis .38-caliber handgun.  It is unknown if the suspect was struck by either round. 

Law enforcement agencies from both Kent and Queen Anne's counties, including a K-9 unit and Trooper 6, searched the area for the suspect but did not locate him.

The suspect is described as having a dark complexion, dark hair, wearing dark clothes and approximately 5-foot-11. Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to contact the MSP Centreville Barrack at (410) 758-1101.
