5/17/2009: Police received a report of a possible burglary in progress. The homeowners had called police to report their garage door opener had been stolen from their car. Instead of going home they called police. A single male officer went to the home, and he saw the garage door open. Once the officer entered the home, he ran into two men burglarizing the home. Investigators say one suspect pulled out a handgun, and that's when the officer shot and killed him.
