DUNCANVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspected robber is on the run and three others are in the hospital after a homeowner opened fire this afternoon.

“Almost like fire crackers but louder,” said neighbor Felicia White.

According to police, three men went into a home on the 6900 block of Rolling Creek Lane and attacked the homeowner. They said one of the men stole something from his house during the struggle before the homeowner grabbed a gun.

Neighbors reported hearing five gun shots. Police said that bullets hit all three suspected robbers. They said the suspects jumped into a Silver Dodge Avenger driven by a fourth man, and that the suspects stopped at an intersection by nearby Duncanville High School.

The three men who suffered gunshot wounds were arrested and taken to the hospital.

Police are still searching for the fourth suspect.
