Lewis County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gene Seiber said the homeowner woke up when he heard someone breaking into his house about 10:40 p.m.
The man confronted the would-be burglar on the stairs and repeatedly told him to stop, Seiber said, but the intruder kept coming toward the homeowner.
After shouting 'freeze' one last time, the homeowner shot him.
The intruder died at the scene. His name has not been released.
Seiber said detectives will be continuing their investigation on Wednesday.
Good that the threat against him was not empty. Never cool to take a life, sounds as though it was justified here.
"If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him."
In other words, if you break in to someone's home and you die, well, probably shouldn't have broken into a home!
