A 25-year-old man told Conway police he saw a masked man dressed in all black holding a rifle and standing outside his storm door after he heard a gunshot Tuesday night, according to a police report.
The victim said he was lying on his living room couch when he heard the shot, and then got his own gun and, along with another victim, 26, in the home who was in the bathroom when he heard the gunshot, fired at the masked suspect, police said.
Authorities said the masked suspect dropped his gun and ran.
Conway police responded about 10:10 p.m. Tuesday to the home on the 1700 block of Robin Road, where two victims told them they both fired guns at the suspect as he ran from the area and said they were unsure if they shot him, authorities said.

Police said a 62-year-old man and 69-year-old man were at the home in a back room when the incident happened, but didn’t hear anything.
Authorities were later told a gunshot wound victim was at Conway Medical Center and had been involved in a disturbance there that evening, according to a police report.
Officers said at about 2:49 a.m. Wednesday they met with the suspect, who had been shot, and he said he was trying to leave the hospital after being treated when unknown suspects argued with him and one swung his fist at him, but missed.
Hospital security arrived before anything else could happen and said they saw the suspect who swung at the man who had been shot get into a white Mercury Grand Marquis. Authorities noted they saw the same car earlier near the victim’s home on Robin Road.
Authorities said Friday that all parties involved were being interviewed. No arrests had made been made by Saturday morning as the investigation is still ongoing, police said.
