The Tri-City Herald reported that police Capt. Jim Raymond says the woman and a male resident awoke to pounding at the front door and the man grabbed a gun. A confrontation took place and Stephan Sergio Aceves, 28, was fatally shot.
Police found Aceves’ body in the home’s front yard.
Raymond says it appears the attempted break-in may have been random.
The residents’ names have not been released.
The resident who fired the gun was questioned by investigators but not arrested. Police will forward the case to the Franklin County prosecutor for review.
