A homeowner shot and killed an intruder early Tuesday morning in Munhall.

According to police, the shooting happened at a home in the 100-block of East Eugene Avenue near Victor Way and Wade Way around 3:45 a.m.

Investigators say the 58-year-old homeowner had been contacted by a neighbor who saw two men breaking into his detached garage.

“About quarter to four this morning, Munhall Police received a call from a homeowner that someone was breaking into his garage,” said Sgt. Joseph Cibula, the Acting Munhall Police chief. “The homeowner came out of his house to confront the suspect inside of his garage. Both the homeowner and the suspect did have a weapon on them.”

 Both opened fire, and it spread out into the alleyway in front of the garage. More than a dozen shots were fired. The homeowner was unhurt but shaken.
