An alleged prowler was shot and killed in Vancouver, WA last night.

Police received reports of a prowler in a neighborhood in Vancouver.

A few minutes later, police received calls that the prowler had been shot by a resident.

The suspect died of his wounds.

According to the Columnbian, Patricia Newstrom works the graveyard shift as a caregiver in a house near the shooting. As she sat drinking coffee on the couch about 4 a.m., she said she heard four loud “booms” of a gun in a row. Soon after, she heard the screeching tires of police cars.

“It startled me,” she said. “What if he had broken in here? That is scary.”
