A burglary suspect was fatally shot by a San Pedro resident Thursday morning.
The incident was reported about 7:15 a.m. in the 2800 block of South Carolina Street, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Drake Madison said.
Investigators discovered a resident in the home opened fire after someone apparently entered the property, Madison said.
Emergency crews arrived to find one person suffering from a gunshot wound and pronounced that person dead at the scene.
It was unclear how the suspected burglar entered the home.
