DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say a man found two people trying to break into his house and fatally shot one of them, a 17-year-old boy.

Police tell the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News that the shooting happened about 12:30 p.m. Thursday on the city’s west side.

Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson says the homeowner heard glass shattering and found the 17-year-old trying to enter through a window.

Johnson says the man fired twice with a handgun, hitting the boy in the chest. Police say the second burglar is believed to be in his 20s and remains at large.

An investigation continues.
