FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- Police in Fort Wayne say a man told them he shot and killed a man who he said kicked in the door to his apartment.
City police spokesman Officer John Chambers tells The Journal Gazette that the resident said the intruder had a gun when he burst into the first-floor apartment in a complex on the city's east side Thursday night.
Chambers says the resident shot the man, who then ran away for a short distance before collapsing. He died shortly after being taken to a hospital.
Chambers tells WANE-TV that the resident had the legal right to shoot an intruder if he acted in acting in self-defense.
