ALVARADO (CBSDFW.COM) – A man visiting a home in rural Alvarado shot and killed a suspect who was attempting to break into the residence early Sunday morning, said Johnson County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Tim Jones.
Sheriff’s deputies and Mansfield Police responded to an emergency call reporting a burglary at a home in the 4100 block of CR 617 at 2:04 a.m. Sunday, Jones said.
When deputies arrived, the resident and a visitor told them a suspect was wandering around outside the home. The resident called 911 to report the activity and ran to another room to get away. Gunshots then rang out, Jones said.
The visitor told investigators that he fired at the suspect multiple times as he tried to enter the home through a back door.
The suspect, identified as Torey David Orgeron, 34, ran to the backyard and collapsed in the grass, Jones said. He was dead at the scene.
Neither the resident nor the victim were arrested. Jones said the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office is now reviewing the case.
