Man Shoots, Kills Burglar

On November 5 at 2:47 p.m., Antioch police received a call from a homeowner that he had just shot a male inside of his residence in the 200 block of West 17th Street in Antioch.

Upon police arrival, one deceased male was located inside the home, and the homeowner was cooperating with officers. Detectives were called to the scene and are currently continuing the investigation. At this time it appears the homeowner interrupted a burglary of one of his vacant homes and defended himself by shooting the burglar after threats were made toward him.

This particular home has been the victim of several burglaries, and it was apparent that at the time of this incident copper piping and wires were being removed from the home. Once again, the homeowner has cooperated fully to this point and has not been placed under arrest as this investigation continues. The identity of the deceased male has not yet been determined.
