MURRAY, Utah (AP) - Police in Murray are investigating after they say a homeowner shot and killed an intruder.

Authorities on Monday identified the slain intruder as Andrew W. Miller.

According to investigators, Miller entered the home just before 7 p.m. Sunday through a sliding glass door.

Police spokesman Kenny Bass says there was damage indicating Miller forced entry into the property.

Upon encountering Miller, the homeowner shot him. Miller was taken to a hospital where he died.



Bass says it appears the men did not know each other and the shooting was done in self-defense.

The homeowner is cooperating with police.
