Detectives aren’t identifying the suspect just yet because they haven’t notified his family.

Lt. Latoya Porter says, “The subject was attempting to burglarize the location with a shotgun when he was confronted, shot, and killed by the resident.

We went back to the house in question just a short time ago to speak with the resident, but no one answered the door.
