Charges pending for homeowner who shot, killed 3 intruders

CHICAGO – Police say charges are now pending against a homeowner who shot and killed three intruders inside his Southeast Side home.

The homeowner told police three people broke into his home Sunday night through the basement and he acted in self-defense, shooting the alleged intruders before locking himself inside a room and calling police.

When police arrived at the scene at 103rd and south Ewing, they found the bodies of a 22-year-old man, 24-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy inside.

One was shot in the head, the others were shot multiple times.

So far police won’t say exactly what the homeowner is being charged with, but he did have a valid firearms card.
