Suspected intruder shot and killed by Omaha homeowner

Omaha police were called to a home at 1607 Drexel Street at 11:34 pm Thursday to investigate a report of shooting. The victim was taken to Creighton University Medical Center where he later died.

The homeowner at that address is reporting there was pounding on the door and a female resident went to answer it. She says that man tried to force his way inside. That is when her husband ran downstairs with a gun and shot the suspected intruder twice. The homeowners then called police.

Investigators have not yet confirmed the man shot and killed was trying to burglarize the home. Names have not been released.
