An East Ridge, Tenn., man told police in that city that several people forced their way into his home this afternoon but he chased them off.

The suspects forced their way into the back door of the East Ridge home on Shirl Jo Lane, police said.

But when the resident, who police haven't identified, chased the intruders they jumped into a blue van with tinted windows and sped off.

East Ridge Police spokesman Robert Wade said the man then pursued the van in his vehicle as they peppered him with shots. But no one was injured.

Police are seeking the intruders.
