An aggravated burglary suspect was shot at after he allegedly punched his neighbor in the face and walked into his home.

Police said a 66-year-old man reported that his neighbor, 36-year-old Daniel Givens, knocked on his door around 7:30 Sunday morning on Sullivan Avenue.

The victim told police he refused to answer the door and Givens left -- only to return several minutes later. When the man opened the door, Givens punched him and entered the home. That's when the victim pulled out a .45 caliber handgun and fired a shot, striking the neighbor in the ankle.

According to police, Givens was treated for non-life threatening injuries and was later charged with aggravated burglary and assault.
