Mom shoots dead home intruder

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Police in Portland, Oregon, say a 33-year-old woman returning home with her two young children shot and killed an intruder in one of her children’s bedrooms.

Police say the woman cooperated with investigators after the Saturday evening shooting and wasn’t arrested. The woman and her 5 and 10-year-old children weren’t hurt. A neighbor told Portland TV station KOIN-TV that the home had been vacant for some time before the family moved in and that squatters were periodically in the home. The name of the 59-year-old man who was fatally shot has not been released. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
