PORTLAND, Ore. -- A mother who returned to her Portland home with her two children late Saturday night shot and killed an intruder who was inside.
The woman, 33, found a stranger in one of her children's bedrooms in her home on the 4100 block of SE 118th Place in Portland. Armed with a handgun, she shot and killed the suspect, a 59-year-old male.
An autopsy will be conducted on the suspect Monday and the medical examiner will attempt to notify the suspect's family. His name will be withheld until the family is notified.
The woman cooperated with investigators and was not arrested. The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office will receive the case for review after the investigation concludes.
