DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Police say an eastern Illinois homeowner shot and killed an intruder during a home invasion.

A Danville man told police that at least two people armed with handguns and wearing ski masks kicked in his door and attempted to rob him Sunday night, Commander Josh Webb said. The homeowner, armed with a handgun, fired multiple shots at the intruders, Webb said.

Officers located a man inside the home suffering from multiple gunshot wounds who later died at an hospital. Vermilion County Coroner Jane McFadden identified the man as Jordan Parrish, 29.

The homeowner told police that at least one other intruder fled the scene when shots were fired, The (Champaign) News-Gazette reported.

No arrests have been made and no other injuries were reported.
