DETROIT (AP) -- Two men have been shot to death during an apparent burglary at a west side Detroit home.

Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody tells The Detroit News and WWJ-AM that officers found the men dead in the driveway after responding Tuesday morning to a report of shots fired.

Woody says the homeowner told officers he confronted the men outside after hearing someone trying to break in. The homeowner said he shot the men after a fight started. Woody says the homeowner has a valid concealed pistol license.

Police Chief James Craig has acknowledged that more Detroit residents appear to be protecting themselves from intruders.

A 17-year-old was shot to death March 6 after breaking into a house. Three days later, another homeowner hit an intruder with a hammer during a break-in.
