An E. High Avenue resident believes that he and his girlfriend were spared an uncertain fate after he pulled a gun on an intruder in his apartment early Sunday.

The resident was awakened by a noise around 2 a.m. and said he saw a man in the doorway to his bedroom.

“When he was in the door, I grabbed the gun and pulled the trigger three times, but it didn’t go off,” the resident told The Times-Reporter on Sunday night.
