Inside, the intruder was shot by the homeowner, the only person in the house at the time, who then called 911, Bass said. The victim died from his injuries at a local hospital. What prompted the homeowner to shoot was still being investigated Sunday.

Bass described the homeowner as being cooperative with police. He was being interviewed by detectives Sunday evening but no one had been arrested.
