Police investigating apparent break-in at former Fulton County DA's home

Police said the person who called 911 heard glass breaking and saw two men run out of the residence through the backyard.

ATLANTA — Police say they are investigating after a reported break-in at the home of former Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard.

According to Atlanta Police, officers were dispatched just after 7 p.m. Wednesday evening to the home in the area of Cascade Road that's just outside of the Perimeter. 

Police said the person who called 911 heard glass breaking and saw two men run out of the residence through the backyard. 

When officers arrived on scene, police said they cleared the home but did not find any suspects inside. 

Police said it appeared that nothing was taken from the home. Investigators have been notified, but there were no details yet on a possible description of the men.

According to Police Officer Steve Avery, on Thursday morning, it does not appear that Howard's home was specifically targeted and the incident does not appear to be anything other than a residential break-in.
