UPDATE: Authorities were looking for 26-year-old Mike Schur as a person of interest in this case. He's been booked in the Washington County jail and faces charges of aggravated residential burglary and first degree battery.
At around 9:30 p.m. Friday, officers responded to Warwick Way. A resident of the house stated someone knocked on his door and he answered holding a handgun. The homeowner later told a neighbor that two subjects with bandannas covering their faces rushed inside and began struggling for the firearm.
"Obviously it frightened him and he got his pistol, but they were on him and knocked him down, and when they knocked him down the gun went off and shot his girlfriend in the leg," said neighbor Larry Fultz.
Police said she was treated at a hospital and released, but that both suspects fled on foot. Authorities are looking for 26-year-old Mike Schur as a person of interest in this case. If you have any information, please call Fayetteville Police at (479) 587-3555.
