The Mohave County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a suspect was shot and killed by a homeowner during an apparent home burglary Saturday night. 

MCSO said just after 7:30 p.m. they received reports that a male suspect entered a home near Roosevelt Street and Jagerson Avenue to rob a homeowner. 

The homeowner told authorities that the suspect came into his home, robbed him and was causing a disturbance. 

The suspect reportedly deployed a TASER at the homeowner several times. 

The homeowner then shot the suspect; the suspect later died from his injuries. 

MCSO said the homeowner has not been charged as the incident is still under investigation.
