    Coon Rapids man kills home invader
    Associated Press

    Authorities are trying to identify an apparent intruder who was shot and killed by a homeowner late Monday night in Coon Rapids.
    Police say the 73-year-old homeowner was asleep on the second floor when a burglar - and possibly another - broke in by kicking in a side door from inside the garage.

    The homeowner grabbed a rifle and shot a male intruder who came into his bedroom with a flashlight. The intruder - believed to be in his 20s - ran downstairs, where he died.

    The homeowner said he heard people talking and believes there was a second suspect who escaped, KSTP-TV reported.

    Coon Rapids police and the Anoka County sheriff's office are investigating. Sheriff's Captain Bob Aldrich says any possible charges would be up to the county prosecutor, but he says they don't see that the homeowner violated any laws.

    I don't work far from Coon Rapids, and I'm curious if my agency has ever dealt with the dead criminal before. I'll have to wait until they release his name. I'm glad the old man wasn't hurt.
