Suspected Burglar Shot by Homeowner

Las Vegas police say a homeowner shot and killed a suspected burglar after coming home and finding the person in his home.

Homicide Lt. Lew Roberts says the homeowner likely would not be charged for the Sunday incident west of Nellis Air Force Base, but said the investigation was still in its early stages.

Roberts says he does not know whether the burglary suspect, identified only as a man in his 30s, was armed. Robert's says the homeowner's gun is registered.
