Indiana Man Shoots And Kills Armed, Masked Burglar

posted on May 27, 2017

A man was asleep in a quiet Evansville, Ind., neighborhood, just before 4 a.m. last Sunday when he heard the slightest of sounds. That noise turned out to be Malcolm Tyler Payton, who was wearing a mask and crawling through a window—and who was also carrying a gun.

Police tell the Evansville Courier & Press that the homeowner awoke to discover Payton breaking into the house. The resident grabbed his gun and quickly fired at the intruder, sending him back out the window. Officers responding to the call found Payton in the neighborhood, unconscious and laying on his gun.

Emergency treatment was administered, but the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators immediately determined the shooting was in self-defense, and that the homeowner acted within state laws.
