An 80-year-old man was released from police custody after it was determined that he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a home intruder. The shooting took place in Flint, Michigan this past Thursday, according to WNEM-TV.

Police were dispatched shortly after 8:45 p.m. Thursday, April 21, after reports of a shooting.

According to law enforcement officials, the 80-year-old man was forced to defend himself after a burglar forced an entry into his home. A 31-year-old man, who has yet to be identified, was shot and killed after the homeowner opened fire.
