A homeowner in Somerset disarmed and detained a man Tuesday who allegedly broke into his home, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.

Jason Campbell and his wife, Dana, heard someone kick open their back door about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the sheriff’s office.

When Jason Campbell went to the door, he found Shane Longlott, 32, of Somerset, according to the sheriff’s office. Longlott was armed with a shotgun, but Campbell was able to get the gun away from him and hold him until officers arrived, according to the sheriff’s office.

Campbell’s three young children were at the home on Wesley Chapel Road at the time of the break-in but were uninjured.

A warrant for Longlott’s arrest had been issued Sunday on charges related to another burglary in Somerset. The charges from the break-in Tuesday include wanton endangerment, burglary, criminal mischief, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the sheriff’s office.
