RPD: Resident Fires Warning Shot During Attempted Robbery

A young man was caught in an East Redding greenbelt after allegedly trying to rob a family in their home Monday. At around 5:20PM, Redding Police were called to Harpole Lane on reports of shots fired. While on the way, officers learned of the attempted robbery. 20-year-old Jacob Marrow was acquainted with someone in the home. He reportedly had violently assaulted a member of the family and demanded cash and property. The victim retrieved a gun to detain morrow and fired a warning shot. Officers located Morrow but he apparently fled on foot into the wooded area at the east end of Harpole and ended up between there and the end of Middleton Drive. Officers set up a perimeter and boxed him in. With help from a CHP helicopter and K9s, Morrow was captured and booked into jail for battery and attempted robbery.
