JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — The Jackson Police Department says a 28-year-old man was shot and killed after allegedly breaking into a home.

Police said they were called to a home on the 1000 block of S. Jackson St. for a shooting around 2:23 a.m. Tuesday morning.

A man had called 911 and said he shot someone that broke into the home he was in.

When officers arrived, they said they found a 28-year-old man on the floor of the dining room area with a gunshot wound in the chest.

The man was taken to Henry Ford Jackson Hospital where he died shortly after arriving, police said.
