Violent Home Invader Shot And Killed In Boulder

19-year-old Roberto Zamora attempted to break into several homes in a Boulder neighborhood before finally choosing the wrong house.

 Several neighbors told police the man was yelling at residents and banging on doors and windows as he tried to break in several homes on Pima Court.

When the man got to a home in the cul-de-sac, and banged on the rear windows, a man inside the home told police he told the female occupant of the home to call police and he grabbed his gun.

“At this point, the suspect had gone around to the front of the house and was banging loudly on the glass screen door, which was locked, continuing his attempt to break in,” Boulder Police said. “The suspect shattered the glass screen door and then burst in through the front door.”

The male resident told police the intruder attacked him, knocked him to the ground and the two fought.

“I watched him go head first through both doors,” said Brock Derby, a neighbor who then heard the gunshots. “Of all the houses to break into here, I think that was the worst to break into.”
