Denver police: Homeowner shoots, kills intruder

A Denver homeowner shot and killed an intruder Saturday, according to Denver police.

The shooting happened in the 2200 block of Lafayette Street at about 9:15 p.m., a police spokesman said.

“This incident is being investigated as a homicide in which an adult male intruder was shot by the homeowner,” police tweeted Sunday.

Police spokesman Tyrone Campbell could not say Sunday why the man was considered an “intruder” or whether he was inside or outside the house when he was shot. He could not provide any additional details on the circumstances of the shooting.

The Denver District Attorney’s office will determine whether criminal charges are warranted, police said. The man who was shot and killed has not been publicly identified.
