WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Sedgwick County prosecutors will decide whether to charge a Wichita man who police say shot and killed an early-morning intruder.

The Wichita Eagle reports the 35-year-old homeowner told police he heard noises around 3:45 a.m. Monday and went to investigate. The homeowner told police the male intruder attacked him without saying anything.

The man says he was able to get a gun and fire several shots at the intruder, who was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police were withholding the name of the 45-year-old man while his relatives were notified. Investigators said they found no indication that the man was armed, nor that the two men were acquainted.
