One person is dead after a resident on Canyon Ferry Drive reported a shooting.  Authorities say a homeowner saw an intruder in his house and confronted him.  Shots were fired and the intruder was hit.  He was able to exit the home and re-enter his vehicle, but drove only a short distance before crashing into a chain link fence.  He died from injuries suffered at the scene.

Jason Grimmis, Patrol Captain, says, "homeowner reported that he came home and interrupted a home invasion. During the initial information provided by the homeowner, shortly thereafter was that shots have been fired and the intruder had exited the home and retreated back to his vehicle which was parked on the east side of the residence".

At this time authorities can only say that the type of weapon used was a pistol, but cannot specify what type.  The incident that occurred at about 2:40 p.m. is still under investigation. We'll bring you the latest as this story develops.
