Homeowner Allegedly Kills Intruder

A man defended his home by allegedly shooting and killing an intruder early Friday morning.

The shooting occurred around 3:30 a.m. at the man's home on Runyon Street on Detroit's east side, Local 4 reported. The intruder suffered a gunshot wound to the head and died at a hospital.

Neighbors said the incident may be related to an argument Thursday at the home. A woman who lives there was arguing with a man outside, but he reportedly left.

"Later on that night, about 8:30, I heard five shots go off. I didn't see the police come or anything," neighbor Ethel Brooks said. "I went to sleep and I heard a single shot about 3 o'clock this morning, I guess that's when someone tried to break into the house.

"Police have taken the homeowner, whose name was not released, in for questioning.

The homeowner has reportedly lived in the house for 27 years. His relationship to the woman who also lives at the home was not known.

Investigators are treating the situation as a home invasion and attempted robbery, Local 4 reported.
