    FLINT, Michigan — A man who was breaking into a home on W. Bishop Avenue, just west of King Avenue, was killed this morning when the homeowner shot the intruder, police said.

    The homeowner was talking on the phone to another family member about 10 a.m. when he thought he heard something at the back door, police said.

    “The suspects had already broken down the back door,” said Flint Police Lt. TP Johnson.

    Johnson said two people had broken into the home. The homeowner was able to get a gun away from one of the intruders, which the homeowner used to shoot one of the intruders, who died, Johnson said.

    The homeowner was not injured and is cooperating with police, Johnson said.

    Police are not yet releasing the name of the man who was shot but Johnson said he appears to be in his 20s.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Bill Meyer at (810) 237-6929 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 422-JAIL.

    Ah, the sting of irony. I love it.

    I take it there are no charges pending or the media would have said so. I cant imagine the need to charge this man with anything other than maybe the cost to replace the spent shell or cartridge in his newly acquired home defense weapon.

    shot by your own weapon.... the most dishonerable way to go... but since they where criminals they had no honor to begin with.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    And the anti-gunners say we will be the ones who have our weapons taken and used on us.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    I'm speechless, but I can still do this...

    (You wouldn't think that things like this could happen in Flint.)
