Police in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, indicate an intrusion suspect allegedly entered a home Wednesday night, refused to leave, and was shot dead.

Wheat Ridge Police’s Sara Spaulding indicated the suspect’s behavior put the homeowner on edge. Spaulding said the suspect allegedly approached the homeowner and his family before being shot.

Spaulding said first responders provided medical care to the suspect and tried to revive him, but he died at the scene.
