According to police, dispatchers received calls around 2 a.m. that a homeowner shot a suspect during a home invasion near Cleveland Street.
When first responders got on scene, medics tried to save the burglary suspect’s life. He was pronounced dead just after 2:30 a.m.
Detectives are investigating claims of self-defense during the home invasion. The Sheriff’s Office says someone in the home had a valid protection order against the deceased.
