ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police are investigating after a homeowner shot one of two suspects who authorities say were trying to break into the man’s home.

WSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1MBNk8M) that the shooting happened around 3 a.m. Sunday on Howell Terrace, in southwest Atlanta.

Police say two men tried to break into the home but the homeowner fought back, overpowering one of the suspects and shooting him multiple times. That suspect was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead around 5 a.m. Sunday.

It wasn’t immediately clear what happened to the second suspect, and few other details were available Sunday afternoon.
