ATLANTA –– Detectives in Atlanta said the victim of a home invasion turned the tables on his intruder.

Police said the homeowner shot and killed a man who was inside his home on Abner Place in northwest Atlanta just before midnight Thursday.

A neighbor told Channel 2 Action News reporter Darryn Moore at the scene that the person who was killed may have been the same person who had been seen casing the neighborhood earlier in the week.

Police said they got a call about a shooting at the home and arrived to find one man shot in the chest.

“Most likely the individual that was that was shot and killed was the person committing the home invasion,” said Lt. Paul Guerrecci of the Atlanta Police Department.

Detectives searched around the home looking for evidence and making sure the homeowner’s version of what happened is legitimate. Officials also searched a white pickup truck that was parked in front of the victim’s home.

“The homeowner indicated that he doesn’t know what the truck is doing here. We’ll attempt to find out if that truck is involved,” said Guerrecci.

Police have yet to identify the person who was killed.
