SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (KPNX/NBC News) — Police in Scottsdale, Arizona are investigating a string of attempted break-ins that ended Thursday night when a homeowner shot and killed a naked intruder in his home.
Investigators say a man was working in an outbuilding on his property when he was alerted to something by the family dog.
The man began to check the property, armed with a shotgun. When he entered the room of one of his children, he was confronted by a naked man, who charged at him with a large piece of wood.
The homeowner fired two shots, killing the intruder.
Scottsdale police say the same suspect had attempted several break-ins in the same neighborhood earlier in the evening, and had been chased away by at least one other homeowner.
