Occupant of apartment kills intruder

Excerpted from originally story that ran here as:
"Occupant of apartment kills intruder"
By Peter Porco
Anchorage Daily News

(Published April 3, 2001)

A man who broke into a Midtown apartment early Monday was shot dead by an occupant, Anchorage police said.

John DaSilva Jr., 27, of Anchorage was pronounced dead inside the small apartment at 3105 Eureka St., a gray flat-roofed five-plex. DaSilva may have been trying to burglarize the home, police said.

No charges have been filed in the case.

At least three people were inside the bedroom of apartment No. 1 at 3:30 a.m. when DaSilva broke the window beside the door and entered the kitchen-living area, said Detective Eric Hamre. He walked into the bedroom, where a confrontation took place, and was shot with a handgun by one of the people there.

"We don't have information about exactly what words were exchanged between the two," Hamre said.

DaSilva was known to one or more of the occupants, Hamre said, but he was not considered a friend.

Police would not say whether DaSilva carried a weapon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A neighbor living in an adjoining apartment said he was awakened by the sound of the window crashing.

"I heard a bunch of yelling, then a pop, pop, pop-pop-pop," said David King, a construction worker from Kenai who has been living on weekdays in the building for about two years.

King learned later that a man had been fatally shot, he said, when police knocked on his door and asked whether he was all right.
