Man Shot, Killed At Apartment While Searching For Ex

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after breaking into a Wheat Ridge apartment to find his ex-girlfriend.

Police say the intruder, who has not yet been identified, exchanged gunfire with the man who lived in the apartment on Saturday night. He was found unresponsive and taken to a hospital, where he died.

No one else was injured.
