Homeowner shoots multiple armed robbers, kills one

LOS ANGELES, CA – A homeowner in Los Angeles defended his home and family from three intruders early Saturday morning, resulting in the death of one suspect, according to local law enforcement.

The incident occurred around 5 a.m. in the Granada Hills neighborhood, on the 11400 block of Swinton Avenue. Upon the arrival of the police, the homeowner recounted his harrowing experience. He had been inside his home, along with a grandmother and a child, when three unidentified men forced their way in.

The homeowner described the intruders as clad in dark clothing, hoodies, and masks. Fearing for his life and the safety of his family, he retrieved a handgun and fired multiple shots at the intruders, hitting one.

Following the shooting, the homeowner pursued the remaining suspects out of his residence. The intruders, who had arrived in a black BMW sedan, fled the scene on foot, leaving their vehicle behind.

Paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department were called to the scene, where they pronounced the wounded suspect dead. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office later confirmed that the suspect had been shot twice and was found with the homeowner’s belongings in his possession.

The Operations Valley Bureau Homicide detectives conducted a preliminary investigation at the scene. The homeowner was brought in for questioning at the Devonshire Community Police Station but was later released. As of Sunday evening, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
