Pascagoula, Mississippi, police indicate a homeowner shot and killed an armed burglary suspect Wednesday in broad daylight.

WXXV reports the incident took place just before noon. The homeowner claims the suspect “was burglarizing his home.”

Fox News reports that the homeowner shot the suspect, killing him.

Harrison County Coroner Brian Switzer is overseeing an investigation of the incident.

On January 7, Breitbart News reported another alleged home invasion in which the suspect was shot in broad daylight. In that incident, a woman arrived at her North Carolina home just after noon to find the front door ajar. She armed herself with a handgun, confronted the suspect, and shot him.
