HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- Police in southwestern Ohio say an 84-year-old homeowner told them he fatally shot a 75-year-old man who broke into his home and assaulted him.
Hamilton police say the family of the alleged intruder, Ed Stevens, reported that Stevens suffered from dementia and Alzheimer's disease. He was found dead in the basement of the home Tuesday morning.
Police say Stevens drove a car into the door of Charles Foster's garage before the shooting. Foster called 911 saying he shot an unknown intruder who had broken down the front door of his house.
Police say no charges have been filed against the homeowner, though it's possible the Butler County prosecutor's office could present the case to a grand jury.
