A 73-year-old Clark Fork man was shot and killed in his home this week after interrupting a burglary, according to the Bonner County Sheriff’s Office.
Sometime between Sunday and Wednesday, investigators said, George Andres returned to his home on the 1200 block of Mountain View Drive and witnessed a burglary in progess before being shot.
Sheriff’s deputies reponded to a call Wednesday of a deceased man and initially ruled Andres’ death as suspicious.
Detectives are still processing the scene and talking to neighbors, the Sheriff’s Office said, but have no suspect description or vehicle information.
