(WMC-TV) - One Memphis man woke up to an overnight surprise – the police at his door, but they weren't looking for him.

Here is what police say happened. Someone tried to steal a car in the 33 hundred block of Starsdale earlier in the evening, but was unsuccessful.

However, the crook decided he wasn't going to give up.

He apparently came back later in the evening, which is when the owner noticed him. The owner then followed him as he stole the car.

At one point, the suspect backed into the victim's other vehicle, and then fired a shot.

No one was hurt, and eventually the suspect ditched the car on Flamingo and ran into someone's backyard. And that is when police showed up.

The officers were captured in an iPhone video coming through the home with massive fire power.

They have yet to find the suspect, but investigators are still searching.

We will update this story as new information comes in.
