Buckley homeowner who killed intruder will not be arrested

The Associated Press

BUCKLEY, Pierce County — The Pierce County sheriff’s office says a homeowner who shot and killed an intruder near Buckley will not be arrested.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the 21-year-old intruder was acting erratically late Monday when he drove through a driveway gate, crashed into several parked cars and then forced his way into the home near 258th Avenue East and 164th Street East.

A woman who lives in the home locked herself in a bathroom and called 911. Her husband grabbed a gun and went to investigate.

Troyer says the homeowner fired at least two shots, killing the intruder inside the home.

The News Tribune reports the 67-year-old man was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.
