We are getting our first look today at a man who was killed while allegedly trying to break into a Colorado home.

Joshua Stevens was shot Monday night in Hot Sulfur Springs in Grand County, northwest of Denver.

This mugshot of Stevens is from a 2007 arrest in Florida.

Authorities say a deputy district attorney for the 14th Judicial District called 911 late Monday to report a stranger behaving erratically at her front door in Hot Sulphur Springs. A fight started after the person tried to push his way into the home, and shots were fired, leaving the man dead. Public information officer Pam Russell said Tuesday she didn't know who fired the shots.

The deputy district attorney and her husband, who is a Grand County sheriff's deputy, had minor injuries.

Russell says there are no obvious ties so far to recent shootings, including that of Colorado's prisons chief.
