A man claimed to be from UPS at the door of a Garden District home, then shot at the residents when they tried to keep him from forcing his way into the home, police said.

Around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, residents of a home in the 1300 block of Jackson Avenue heard a knock at the door and someone calling out, 'UPS,' according to police. When one resident opened the door, there was a man with a gun instead who began trying to force his way inside, so two residents began trying to shut the door, the report states.
