Sacramento police said a shop owner shot and killed a suspected burglar who dropped in through the store's ceiling early Monday.

The city's homicide unit is investigating the shooting. The owner was not arrested and the matter will be reviewed by the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office.

The shooting occurred at 4:36 a.m. at Video Store #6 at 5679 Stockton Blvd., said Sacramento Police Sgt. Daniel Hahn.

The owner, whose name was not immediately available, lives in the store and awoke to the sound of people on the roof, Hahn said. When he heard noise near the air conditioning grate, the man grabbed a cell phone and called 911, Hahn said. He also armed himself with a handgun.

The suspected burglar removed the grate and dropped through the hole, Hahn said. The shop owner, who was still on the phone with dispatchers, shot him.

Hahn said paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene. Another person who was on the roof when the shooting occurred fled the scene and is still being sought, Hahn said.

The identity of the slain man was not immediately known.

Police confiscated the shop owner's gun pending the completion of their investigation, Hahn said.

Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
