Pensacola Man Fatally Shoots Intruder

Authorities say a Pensacola man won't be charged for fatally shooting a man trying to break into his home.

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office says 63-year-old Edward Lucas Senior woke up early Sunday and found a man trying to get in his house.

Investigators say Lucas shot at 29-year-old Tyrone Preyer more than four times.

A spokesman for the department says Lucas won't be charged because he was acting in self defense.

Reports show Preyer was suspected in several other neighborhood break-ins.
