A northwest side homeowner fired several shots at two men who were apparently trying to break into his home on the city's northwest side early this morning, Newsradio 1200 WOAI reports.

  Police say it happened in the 100 block of Fennel, which is near Loop 410 and Cherry Ridge Drive.

  Police think the two men were drunk and had wrecked their car moments before.

  It's not known why the men were trying to break into the house, but the shots fired by the homeowner scared them away.  Police say the men were trying to get into the house through the back door.

  One of the men was arrested as he was running away from the home, the other remains at large.
