NV: Resident Fataly Shoots Intruder who Forced Entry
Police received a call about 1 a.m. from a man in his mid-20s who said he shot another man who broke into his apartment, Lt. Dan McGrath said. He told Metro there was a loud “bang, bang, bang” at the door before the man forced his way in, McGrath said.
McGrath said the resident then shot and killed the intruder.
When officers arrived, the resident was outside the apartment with a friend. The resident had a gun. Police asked him to put it down, which he did, setting it on a curb.
