From the May 18, 2009 Sacramento Bee:
Sacramento County sheriff's detectives continue to investigate the fatal shooting this morning of a man they say was breaking into a coin and jewelry.
The suspect was killed by the owner of the store on the 4900 block of Marconi Avenue. The 65-year-old owner has not been arrested, a sheriff's spokesman said.
The district attorney will determine if any charges are filed against the owner, based on results of the sheriff's investigation.
The shop owner was inside the store when the incident began at about 4:15 a.m. Investigators are gathering evidence that will help determine if the shooting was justified.
Sheriff's Sgt. Tim Curran said two men approached the store, which had been the target of another break-in on April 29. This time, the owner was inside and called the sheriff's department to report two men in their mid-20s and wearing black ski masks trying to enter.
Curran said that as the owner spoke on the phone with department personnel, the person taking the call heard several gunshots.
"Then the business owner said one subject was down in the parking lot," Curran said.
Deputies arrived to find a body in the park
ing lot. Fire department emergency personnel pronounced the man dead at the scene.
