BILLINGS -

An alleged home intruder was killed after he failed to obey the orders of a Wyoming homeowner who gave him the opportunity to leave.

According to the Sheridan Police Department, officers responded to a home on the 200 block of West 10th Street shortly after 3 a.m. on Sunday.

The Sheridan residence is home to a couple and two children. The woman reported to police that an adult male intruder, who was not known by the couple, entered the home without permission.

The woman's boyfriend attempted to get the intruder to leave peacefully.

When the intruder refused, the homeowner armed himself with a shotgun.

The intruder again refused to leave the home. "The male resident felt threatened after exhausting efforts to talk the man into leaving the residence," police stated in the press release.

The man shot the intruder once in the chest.

He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The occupants of the home were unharmed and are cooperating with the investigation.

It was determined the intruder entered the home through an unlocked door. The dead intruder was not identified by police until family is notified.

The investigation is ongoing.
