Homeowner shoots intruder, killing him on Detroit's west side

An intruder was fatally shot by a homeowner Tuesday night on Detroit's west side. 

Police say a man in his 20s entered a home in the 6000 block of Chopin near Burwell Tuesday night before 10. 

The 39-year-old homeowner, who was outside with his kids at the time, heard a commotion and went back inside. That's when police say he confronted the intruder, shooting and killing him. 

At this point the homeowner is not in custody as police are investigating this as a likely case of self defense.
