Police: Resident Shoots, Kills ‘Armed Intruder’


Detectives in King County, Washington, say a resident shot and killed an “armed intruder.”

The incident occurred in Shoreline around 7 a.m. Saturday.

According to Q13 Fox, the resident awoke to the sound of two suspects allegedly kicking in “the front door.” The resident said “at least one of the suspects was armed with a gun.” The resident opened fire, striking one suspect with an unreported number of bullets and causing the second suspect to flee the scene.

Seattlepi reports that paramedics tried to revive the suspect, but to no avail. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

King County Sheriff’s detectives continue to investigate the alleged break-in and subsequent shooting.
