The homeowner told deputies he and his wife returned home Monday afternoon and found two intruders in their house. He grabbed a shotgun and shot one of the intruders. The 50-year-old later died at the scene.
The homeowner may have hit the second intruder as well, but that man was able to get away in the homeowner’s gray 2002 Ford Explorer with Washington license 249-ZCL, West said.
She said the SUV’s passenger window was shot out by the homeowner.
