Detroit police say a break-in suspect who was shot by homeowner has died after crashing a getaway vehicle into a nearby home.
Sgt. Michael Woody tells reporters that two people tried to break into the home early Thursday on the city's west side through a window and a third was sitting in the vehicle.
Woody says the homeowner shot at the suspects, who returned fire. He says the person in the vehicle was hit and the two other suspects fled on foot.
One person in the home that was crashed into was injured. Police didn't immediately say whether the gunfire or crash killed the suspect.
The other two break-in suspects are being sought.
