A homeowner shot and wounded one of two suspects who entered his home in Newport Beach on April 16, and the second suspect apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
Officers went to the neighborhood near Newport Coast Drive at about 4:45 a.m., the Newport Beach Police Department reported.
According to police, the two suspects entered the residence in what investigators believe was a targeted attack, and the homeowner fired at them.
One suspect was found wounded outside the residence and in possession of a firearm, police said. He was taken into custody.
Officers searched for the second suspect and found him dead nearby with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The names of the suspects were not immediately available.
An Orange County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team was also called in, and the investigation continued Tuesday morning.
