A homeowner told investigators Wednesday that he shot a man who had broken into his Little River home, according to police.
The fatal shooting happened just after noon Wednesday in the 7000 block of Northwest Fifth Place.
Christopher Bess, a Miami police spokesman, said the man told police his home was being burglarized so he opened fire.
The possible burglar was fatally wounded, police said.
A woman who identified herself as living with the homeowner told WSVN7 that he was inside the home with his 3-year-old son, who alerted him to the burglar.
