PORTLAND, Ore. — An Oregon woman fatally shot a home intruder after she found him in her child's bedroom early Sunday, the Portland Police Department said.
Officers went to the woman's home around 1:45 a.m. Sunday after receiving a report of a homeowner shooting someone inside her home.
The woman, 33, said she had returned home with her two children, ages 5 and 10, when she found a stranger in one of her child's bedrooms. She was armed with a handgun and fired at least one shot at the man.
Officers found the man, 59, dead at the scene.
Police did not identify the man, citing the need to notify his family. An autopsy will be performed Monday.
