Police responded to a Lexington duplex not once, but twice Thursday morning for two separate burglaries.
First, police say witnesses spotted two men near a home on Ward Drive around 12:30 a.m. before they tried to get in through a back door. The man inside the home was armed and fired at the duo, who returned fire. The two suspects ran to a waiting car. Police say responding officers spotted the fleeing vehicle and pulled it over. Inside, they found two men and a woman, along with a pistol and a rifle. Officers arrested all three.
A short time after officers left the scene, they were called back. Police say two people saw what happened earlier and broke into the house after officers left. Police caught those two and arrested them as well.
Police say they found drugs and guns inside the home.
