BOSTON (AP) - Police say a Boston homeowner shot at two masked men, killing one, when they tried to force their way into his home.

Commissioner William Evans says the person who was shot collapsed and died on the front steps of the home in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood.

The second suspect fled but was caught a short time later. He was armed. He is expected to appear in court later Wednesday.

No names were released.

The homeowner is being questioned but was not immediately charged with a crime. Police are trying to determine if he was legally allowed to carry a firearm and whether the shooting was justified.
