LUMBERTON, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina authorities say a woman shot and killed a man who had broken into her home.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1ZZ9M1m) the shooting occurred Friday morning at a home in Robeson County.

Maj. Anthony Thompson is a spokesman for the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office. He said the woman had left home to run an errand, and when she returned, she saw an unfamiliar Jeep parked in her driveway.

Thompson said the woman entered the house with her gun, and she confronted a man who was carrying her iPad before she opened fire. The spokesman did not specify the exact circumstances that led her to shoot. No one returned a phone call to the sheriff’s office Friday afternoon.

Neither the woman nor the intruder has been identified.
