BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Police say an intruder shot and killed in Boulder tried to get inside other nearby homes just before the shooting.

Witnesses say the man, identified by the coroner’s office as 19-year-old Roberto Zamora, of Boulder, had been banging on their doors and windows Monday night. Police say Zamora then banged on a window at the back of the home where a man and a woman were watching television.

The man says he retrieved his handgun before Zamora came around to the front of the house, shattered a glass storm door and burst inside. Police say Zamora then attacked the resident and they began fighting on the floor. The resident shot Zamora once in the chest, saying he feared for his life.

Prosecutors will decide whether the resident is protected by Colorado’s Make My Day law.
