Police said an apartment resident in Ontario shot and killed a man who broke into his home early Monday morning. The intruder has been identified by police as a 24-year-old Barstow man, who was drunk and mistakenly went to the victim’s apartment unit and broke into the home.

While there is no “stand-your-ground” legislation in California per se, the state does have laws in place sanctioning the use of deadly force against home intruders. The shooter is a legal gun owner. “Obviously [the victims] have the ability to protect themselves in their home with reasonable force,” Ontario police Sgt. David McBride told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
