Family members told FOX31 that the home owner told the suspect to leave several times, warning he had a gun, but the 25-year-old was going to have to break down the door and was subsequently shot and killed.

“I think it’s a shame to my neighbours in there, they’re a cute couple, and they have a little boy,” Kathy Parsons, a neighbor on the other side of the street, he told the tv station. “The man began, trying to beat down the door, and he felt that he had a gun with him, ready and waiting for you to come.”
