An intruder armed with a gun was shot by a homeowner Tuesday afternoon in Palermo, according to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.

Sgt. Matt Keeling said the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of shots fired a little after 2 p.m. at a house on the 6900 block of Upper Palermo Road.

“When I arrived, I found an individual in the kitchen on the floor and unresponsive,” Keeling said at the scene. “At this time, we don’t know anything else.”

At this time, no further details are available…

Update: The suspect has since expired.
