Man gunned down while trying to break into home


SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A man was shot and killed as he tried to break into a house in Barrio Logan, police said Friday.

The deadly gunfire a block from the Coronado Bridge was reported shortly after 11:30 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego police.

Officers arrived to find a man who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s mortally wounded in a bathroom at a home on National Avenue near South Evans Street, Lt. Andra Brown said. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Witnesses told investigators the man was shot after forcing his way into the house during an argument with another man.

“It is unknown at this time if the (intruder) was known to the residents of the home,” the lieutenant said Friday morning.

It also remains unclear who fired the fatal shots, according to Brown.
