SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) – Detectives say they’re investigating after a Shoreline resident shot and killed one of two intruders who kicked in the front door of his house.

The resident told the King County Sheriff’s Office he woke up Saturday morning when the two men kicked in the door and entered the home. He said at least one of the men had a gun.

He said that after he shot one intruder the other ran off.

Medics responded but were unable to resuscitate the suspect.
