AURORA, Colo. -- A homeowner shot and killed a man who he said tried to force his way into the home Tuesday morning.
It happened in the 1700 block Fulton at about 8:27 a.m.
"The intruder used a window that was partially opened with an air conditioning unit to gain entry into the home and climbed inside," said Detective Bob Friel. "At that point he was confronted by the homeowner and the intruder was shot one time with a shotgun."
According to Friel, the intruder pushed out the air conditioner to gain just before he was shot.
Police said the man was rushed to the hospital but died from his wounds. They also said the homeowner had been burglarized in the past.
