SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport police have taken two people into custody in connection with a burglary Monday morning. 

Police say 26-year-old Tarodganey Sumner and 27-year-old Calvin Horton are accused of breaking into multiple houses and stealing several items. 

Just after 11:45 a.m., a concerned neighbor who witnessed two men kicked in the door of a house in the 3000 block of Burson Drive called the police.

Police say liaison officers were heavily patrolling the area because of recent burglaries in the Southern Hills neighborhood where multiple dogs were reported shot.

Once officers arrived, the men took off and ran into the yards of neighbors.

Police say Sumner ran into the yard where a man and his father were. Sumner reportedly pointed a suppressed .22 caliber pistol at them causing the man, who was also armed, to fire a shot to defend his life and the life of his father. 

The shot did not hit Sumner but it did lead to him drop his weapon and get on the ground. The man and his father then yelled out for officers who then came and took the suspected burglar into custody.

Horton was also located in another neighbor's yard and taken into custody.

Investigators found the suspects' dark gray four door Chevy Impala parked at another house in the neighborhood. Inside of it they found a suppressed 9 mm handgun, bags of jewelry and a small amount of marijuana. 

Officers later discovered the jewelry had been taken during a separate burglary in the 300 block of Atlantic in the Broadmoor neighborhood from earlier that day. 

The suppressed .22 caliber handgun used to assault the two men in their backyard was also recently stolen during a burglary on Maryland Avenue in the South Highland’s neighborhood, according to police.

Sumner and Horton were each charged with one count of aggravated burglary and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. 

Sumner was also charged with illegal possession of a stolen firearm and two counts of aggravated assault. 

Both were booked into the Shreveport City Jail.

Police say more charges are forthcoming. 

It is unknown if the pair is connected to the burglaries where multiple dogs were shot.
