    PHOENIX — Police say a west Phoenix man shot and killed a man who apparently forced his way into his home early Thursday.

    Detective Stacie Derge says the victim told authorities he woke up at about 1:30 a.m. to what sounded like someone kicking in his front door. The man armed himself with a rifle. The resident then shot a young man armed with a handgun when the man burst into the bedroom where he and his family were sleeping.
    Derge says the suspect died at the scene, and a gun was found near his body.

    The home's resident has not been charged with any crime as detectives continue to investigate. No identities have been released.
    Dead Perp.

    Now, was that detail entirely necessary? I mean, granted, the homeowner could have missed, or could have been firing .22 shorts... but in general, you ain't gettin' up from a rifle shot.
