A White Center, Washington, homeowner shot and killed an alleged intruder Monday morning while on the phone with a 911 dispatcher.
KOMO News reports the homeowner heard the sound of glass breaking around 2:45 a.m. and called 911.
King County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Ryan Abbott said the homeowner soon told the dispatcher “he heard somebody coming up toward his room. …The next thing that was heard was shots fired.”
Law enforcement arrived to find the suspect deceased at the scene.
The homeowner thought more than one suspect entered his home, but a subsequent search by a KCSO K-9 did not turn up another suspect.
