Police are investigating a shooting in a Fort Worth home after a woman shot and killed a home intruder. Authorities say the man was attempting to break into the woman's west Fort Worth at around 3:30 a.m Thursday morning.

The woman called her husband, who told her to get their gun and protect herself. The name of the shooter and the deceased were not immediately released Thursday. It is possible that the man may have believed he was entering his own house, however investigations continue.
