Florida: Police: Intruder Shot, Killed In Break-In

Miami-Dade County, Florida

From Local10 of March 25, 2008
Police: Intruder Shot, Killed In Break-In

A resident might have shot and killed one of two intruders who tried to break into his southwest Miami-Dade County home early Tuesday morning, police said.

The fatal shooting occurred at about 2 a.m. outside 5851 SW 118th Ave.

Miami-Dade police said it appeared two men tried to burglarize the home when the resident fought with them outside and fatally shot one of them. The second intruder fled the scene but was later found west of 118th Avenue, police said. He was detained and is being questioned by police.

Police were also questioning the resident of the home, but it was too early to determine exactly what happened, Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.

The resident's family said he was OK and that there had been intruders at the home before.
