Michael Brown, 29, said he heard a knock about that time but didn't answer because he didn't know who was outside. Suddenly, two men kicked in the door.

Brown grabbed a .45-caliber pistol and fired at the men. He said the men fled. A third man standing by a vehicle backed into a parking place near his door fired a shot at him. Brown fired twice more, but the men got away.

In all, Brown shot five times, three of which apparently hit a vehicle parked by the suspects', the police report said A search for the suspects was unsuccessful.
