BUCKLEY -- The Pierce County sheriff’s office says a homeowner who shot and killed an intruder near Buckley, Wash., will not be arrested.
Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the 21-year-old intruder was acting erratically late Monday when he drove through a driveway gate, crashed into several parked cars and then forced his way into the home.
A woman who lives in the home locked herself in a bathroom and called 911. Her 67-year-old husband grabbed a gun and went to investigate.
Troyer says the homeowner fired at least two shots, killing the intruder inside the home.
The medical examiner identified the dead man as Cole Mathews. KING-TV reported that the man had no criminal record.
KING said the homeowner was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
