Colorado police fatally shoot armed homeowner who killed intruder

- A Colorado man was shot and killed by police in his own home - just moments after he had shot and killed an intruder.

One call was very specific and dire: A woman said an intruder was breaking into her home in the middle of the night.

The man killed the officer was taken to the hospital, where he died.

After police searched the house, they found the suspected intruder dead on a bathroom floor.

Authorities also found an injured juvenile, who was taken to the hospital for "serious, but non-life-threatening injuries". The department did not say if the victim was killed by police inside or outside his home, or if he tried to identify himself as a resident before police shot him.

The Aurora Police Department said it was responding to a 911 call about an intruder and heard shots fired from inside a home in the city shortly after 1:30 a.m. local time Monday.

She said he had behaved unreasonably and said she should not reasonably be expected to stay married. And with the case still dismissed by the Supreme Court justices, Tini had left without a recourse.

"This is a very heartbreaking and tragic situation for everyone involved", a police spokesperson said in a statement. "We are providing assistance through our victim advocates to help the family of the deceased resident through this very hard time", Metz said.

Aurora police have not identified the officer.

The officer, whose name also has not been released, was placed on administrative leave as per department policy when an officer fires their weapon on duty. Because this incident occurred within Adams County, the facts of the investigation will be presented to the Office of the District Attorney for a determination of whether criminal charges should be filed against any involved person. As explained, under the 1985 Homeowners Protection Act, a shooting is justifiable if a homeowner believes that an intruder has intention to cause bodily harm or death against the homeowner or someone else inside of the residence.

An investigation is ongoing.

The shooting marked the second deadly encounter involving Aurora police in three days.
