Son Shoots, Kills Intruder Who Broke Into San Diego Home and Stabbed His Dad: Police

San Diego police say a fatal shooting at a home this week involved a violent confrontation with an intruder.

Officers responding to a 911 call early Tuesday found a 54-year-old homeowner on the floor with stab wounds and the intruder with a gunshot wound in a backyard pool.

Paramedics took the homeowner to a hospital where he was in stable condition.

The intruder, 38-year-old Hollis Forman, was removed from the pool at the 6300 block of Lakeshore Drive and pronounced dead at the scene.

The Police Department says homicide detectives determined that the homeowner confronted the intruder and was assaulted.

The homeowner's 20-year-old son then got a gun and shot the intruder, who ran out the back door and landed in the pool.

The incident occurred in a neighborhood near Lake Murray.
