By  | 

Police say a woman who shot and killed a man who was reportedly trying to break into her home was justified to do so.

The shooting happened just after midnight Sunday at a home near 29th and West Colorado in Old Colorado City.

Officers say the 59-year-old resident woke up to see a man who shattered her window and was trying to climb into her home.

The woman reportedly warned the man to stop and that she has a gun, and even fired a warning shot. When he reportedly continued to make his way into the house, she shot and killed him.

The man has been identified as 32-year-old Eduardo Gonzalez-Ortiz.
