Homeowner Shoots, Kills Intruder

A Madison County homeowner shot and killed an intruder who tried to break into his home Sunday morning, police said.

Sheriff Clayton Lowe said William Keith Parks of Carlton, Ga., entered the home about 12:30 a.m. Sunday and was shot and killed by the homeowner.

Lowe did release the homeowner’s name.

County Coroner Michelle Cleveland said Parks, 41, was shot in the chest with a shotgun at close range as he entered the house through the door of a rear porch.

Cleveland said there was no altercation before the shooting and the homeowner’s wife called 911 afterward.

An autopsy is planned.

Comer is located near Athens, Ga.
