S.E. Side homeowner kills intruder

A Southeast Side homeowner shot and killed a man early Thursday morning who was trying to break into his bedroom window.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, was trying to get into a rear bedroom window of a house in the 1400 block of Greer and when the homeowner shot him, police said.

The homeowner, a firearms instructor, was home alone and in the bedroom the burglar was attempting to enter.

The homeowner, who teaches people how to shoot weapons, told police he awoke just after 3 a.m. to a see a man trying to climb in his bedroom window.

Police say the homeowner got a handgun and fired at least three times. No charges are expected to be filed against the homeowner.

Investigators are trying to determine if the dead man was linked to a nearby burglary 15 minutes before he was shot at the house on Greer.
