Man accused of shooting at house
LOGANVILLE - A Loganville man allegedly shot at a house and kicked in the front door Sunday evening after he discovered his ex-girlfriend was watching television with his friend, according to a Gwinnett County police report.
A man who lives in the Fire Thorn subdivision in Loganville told police he was sitting on the couch with his new girlfriend when his friend knocked on the door. When his friend saw the woman who had dumped him three days earlier, he turned around and started walking away - and then pulled a gun out of his waistband and aimed it at the woman's new boyfriend, according to a police report.
The man told police he ran back inside, locked the door and ran upstairs with the woman. The two reported that heard someone fire a gun twice and kick the front door three or four times. When the two came downstairs, they saw a maroon car driving away, the police report states.

Firefighters rescue dog from fire
DULUTH - A man was treated for smoke inhalation Wednesday morning after he tried to go back into his burning house to rescue his dog, Gwinnett County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Thomas Rutledge said.
Firefighters rescued the lab mix, Carla, from a kennel on the main level of the house, Rutledge said. The man was treated at the scene, and his wife and two children were uninjured in the blaze.
Rutledge said the fire appears to have started accidentally in the garage and extended to the second floor and attic of the two-story wood frame house on the 2300 block of Ingram Road in Duluth. The blaze caused heavy damage to the home, and the Red Cross was called to assist the family.
