Lubbock Police are investigating an attempted home invasion that took place this morning in northwest Lubbock.  The incident happened in the 4600 block of Jarvis Street around 8:30am.

One of the home’s residents happened to be at home as the perp tried to kick in the front door.  Amanda Martinez fired a gun shot through the door.  She missed the suspect and he ended up getting away before police arrived.
