OH: Homeowner kills intruder

Source: Scioto Valley Guardian

“A man is dead after deputies say a homeowner shot and killed him during a home invasion. The 9-1-1 caller told dispatchers that the reported intruder had entered through a side door in the residence and was ‘trying to burglarize’ the house. The Guardian has been unable to confirm the motive or reasoning for the man’s presence at the property. When deputies arrived they found the man deceased on the lower-level of the home, while the homeowners were upstairs. … Law enforcement said that there was damage to the side door of the home, but stopped shy of confirming a motive.” (07/25/22)
