(WDAF-TV) An early morning home invasion ended with the suspected intruder shot and killed.

Police said a home owner in the 9000 block of N. Garfield in Kansas City, Mo., shot a man who broke into his home just after 5:30 Wednesday morning. The shooting victim suffered life-threatening injuries and died inside the residence. He was 20 years old. Police have not released his identity.

Police said the suspected home intruder was responsible for a series of crimes early Wednesday morning. Police said he stole a vehicle in Clay County, Mo., and crashed it near NE 79th Street. After stealing a second car, Gladstone police pursued him. The suspect ended up driving that car through a garage. Police said the suspect then car jacked a third vehicle – a Ford F150 — at gunpoint at a HyVee near Indiana. Police said the suspect ditched that truck at 92nd and North Brooklyn and from there broke into a home near 90th and Garfield where he fought with the home owner. The suspect fled the scene and broke into a second home, which is where he was shot and killed.
