WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — A burglar was fatally shot after breaking into a northern Indiana home, police said Wednesday.
Warsaw police said they were called around 9:40 p.m. Tuesday to a home on the city’s east side on a report of “an alleged breaking and entering by an adult male suspect who was shot inside that residence.”
Officers arrived to find the man suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. Police and medics tried to save his life but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Three adults and a young child who were in the home at the time were taken for interviews, police said in a news release. They were cooperating with investigators, police said.
It wasn’t clear who shot the burglar, who was not identified.
