Girl finds burglar in her house

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -

Clearwater detectives are still searching for two men they say broke into a home, and shot at a 16-year-old girl.

The home invasion happened Friday afternoon on Ridgewood street.

The teen's father, Tom Byrnes,  tells us she went to check on some noises she heard upstairs, and wound up facing three men and the barrel of a gun.

He says a burglar fired one shot in her direction and she ran to a neighbor's house for help.

"I've never had somebody point a gun and shoot at me, so I don't know how she's feeling, but I know how I'm feeling and it's not good, she said her ears are still ringing from the shot." Byrnes said.

Detectives say they've arrested one of the suspects, but they are looking for two more.
The first suspect now faces felony charges.

Police think the break-in may be related to a couple of other recent burglaries in Pinellas county.
