Missoula man shot, killed while burglarizing Corvallis home

CORVALLIS – A Missoula man was shot and killed early Monday morning while he was apparently burglarizing a residence northwest of Corvallis, according to Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman.

Hoffman said the resident of the home reported that he was awakened by noises in and around the house shortly before 4 a.m.

When the resident went to investigate, he found a man climbing through a window that had just been broken.

When the resident ordered the intruder not to move, the man turned toward him. The resident was armed with a handgun and shot the intruder, who then jumped back through the broken window and ran away from the house.
