SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- A woman shot and killed an armed intruder in her West Seattle home Thursday morning, police said.

Spokesman Scott Moss said the intruder began beating a male resident about 6 a.m. The woman got a handgun and fired several shots, hitting the intruder in the abdomen. He died inside the home at 35th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Brandon Street.

The 38-year-old man who was beaten was in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center with a head wound, hospital spokeswoman Kristin Foley said.

The woman who shot the intruder told police she and the man who was beaten did not know the intruder, Moss said.

Seattle homicide detectives were investigating.

Home intruder dies after being shot in West Seattle

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- An armed intruder was shot and killed this morning while scuffling with a resident in a home in West Seattle.

While fighting with a male resident, the intruder was shot by a woman who had armed herself with a gun, said Seattle police spokesman Scott Moss.

The intruder, in his 20s, who also had a gun, collapsed and died while still inside the home in the 5200 block of 35th Avenue Southwest, Moss said. The home borders the south end of the West Seattle Golf Course.

The male resident suffered head cuts during the fight. He was in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center, where he refused press interviews.

Moss said the intruder, a white male, forced his way into the home shortly after 6 a.m. It is uncertain if he knew the residents, police said.

Police homicide Sgt. Ed Striedinger said the home was divided into two apartments, with a shared main area. The man occupied the lower floor and the woman lived upstairs. The two levels are joined by a stairway, he said.

It was the man  s door at the side of the house that the intruder kicked in, Striedinger said. The woman responded after hearing the struggle, he added.

One neighbor said the man and woman are renters who have not lived there long.

Other neighbors gathered to determine what happened.

"What you want to know is if he (the intruder) knew them & if he was a stranger," one neighbor said, asking that her name not be used. It also illustrates that "if you didn  t have a gun they could have been killed," she said.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- A woman fatally shot an armed intruder in a West Seattle home Thursday morning after he burst inside and began beating a man in the house, police said.

Responding to a 911 call around 6:15 a.m., officers found the alleged intruder dead inside the home in the 5200 block of 35th Avenue Southwest, Seattle police spokesman Scott Moss said.

It was unclear how many shots the woman fired, Moss said.

The 38-year-old man who was beaten was in satisfactory condition with a head wound at Harborview Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Kristin Foley said.

The woman told police she and the man in the home at the time of the break-in did not know the intruder, Moss said.

Seattle homicide detectives were investigating.

War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. John Stuart Mills
