In Sacramento, California two home intruders were shot dead after being confronted by an occupant of the home they allegedly tried to burglarize. Per the Sacramento Police Department, officers were called to the 1000 block of Arcade Boulevard around 12:18 a.m. Sunday for a robbery in progress. Once at the scene, however, officers found that two young men had been shot dead.
Investigators say that one of the occupants of the home confronted the suspects during the burglary and fired a firearm in self-defense. Michele Gigante with Sacramento Police said the occupants of the home are an elderly man and woman, but would not say which of them fired the shots. The man and woman were not injured in the incident. “When it comes to use of force, or burglars, or any type of fear for your safety, fear for someone else’s safety … you have the right to defend yourself,” Gigante said.
