ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a suspected home intruder has died after the Albuquerque homeowner opened fire.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2jOUBxd ) that Officer Simon Drobik says police responded to a report Saturday night that two people dressed in black and wearing masks were trying to break into a man’s home.

Drobik says the homeowner shot at the intruders inside the residence when he saw them armed with “blunt objects or edged weapons.”

One of the reported intruders died at the scene. The other suspect was not there when police arrived and it is unclear if that person has been located.

The homeowner has not been charged with a crime.

The incident remains under investigation.
