CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say a man has killed an intruder who broke into his apartment.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has identified the slain intruder as 51-year-old Derek Carson of Douglas Park.

Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene, but his cause of death is unknown and under investigation.
