Police in Charlotte say a man shot and killed a 23-year-old who was trying to break into his home.

Homicide detectives say the shooter was home alone and observed a car in the driveway and a person walking to the rear of the home. Authorities say Aykroid tried to kick in the door, but was shot after the man inside fired once through the back door. Aykroid was pronounced dead on the scene.

A police spokeswoman says they are treating the case as a breaking and entering and took the shooter to police headquarters for questioning. CMPD announced Tuesday night, he will not be charged.
