Home riddled with bullets after car owner exchanges gunfire with would-be thieves. Lisa Benson reports.

(KSHB) Several homes were riddled with bullets Thursday morning when a man exchanged gunfire with two men attempting to steal his car from his Kansas City, Kansas driveway.

Police investigators used a K-9 unit and followed foot prints in the snow to nearby apartments. After knocking on several doors, police found two men who matched the suspect description inside of one of the apartments and took the men into custody.

News of the apprehension gave Lavel Ferrell some relief after he and his family heard gunfire and saw bullets whipping through their home.

"Some bullets came thought the house, ricocheted off a couple of walls. I told the kids to get down. I'm a little frustrated; a little ticked off about it," Ferrell said.
