Police: Resident kills gunman during home invasion

A resident shot and killed a gunman who forced his way into an apartment early today, according to Metro Police.

The incident, which police described as a home invasion, was reported shortly before 1 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 3600 block of East Sahara Avenue, just west of U.S. 95.

The resident was in his apartment when an unidentified man armed with a handgun forced the front door open, police said. The resident retrieved his own gun and shot the man, police said.

When officers arrived, they found the shooting victim, whose name has not yet been released, unresponsive inside the apartment, police said.

No arrests have been made, police said. Once the investigation is finished, the findings will be submitted to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for review, police said.
