(KMOV) – An alleged burglar was shot and killed while apparently trying to break into a home.
It happened just before midnight on Tuesday night at a house in the 5900 block of Astra in north St. Louis.
The house is reportedly vacant and is under repair.
Police say a man was in the house when he heard someone breaking in. The man tells police that he saw the suspect inside his house and shot him multiple times.
After being shot, police say Deandre Robinson, 26, tried to run from the scene but collapsed just outside the house.
Robinson was taken to a local hospital where he later died.
No word yet about any possible charges in this case.
