A 30-year-old Maryland man had his tire shot out as he was fleeing from a Millsboro, Maryland area home he had allegedly broken into.

State police charged Brad Donaway, of the 8700 block of Gumboro Road, with second-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools, agency spokesman Sgt. Walter Newton said.

The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at a residence on Bethel Road.

A neighbor saw activity at his next-door neighbor’s home and called the neighbor at work to make sure no one was supposed to be there, Newton said.

When the victim told his neighbor that no one was supposed to be in his home, the neighbor retrieved his shotgun and went over to the house and confronted the burglar.

Donaway ran out of the house and got into his car and was trying to drive off when the neighbor fired a round into his left tire, Newton said.

Donaway continued driving and headed back to Maryland.

Troopers contacted him and he returned to Delaware and surrendered, Newton said.
