A Norristown man who shot and killed an intruder who had entered his house used justified force, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said Monday.
"The laws of our commonwealth provide that citizens of our community may stand their ground and defend themselves inside their homes," District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said.
"Faced with an armed intruder who illegally entered his home, the resident was justified in using deadly force to protect himself."
On July 28 at 1:27 a.m., police went to a house on Willow Street where they found the body of Daryl Marquis Evans, 22, in the living room with gunshot wounds to his chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
