Scottsdale police are investigating after a homeowner shot and killed a burglary suspect.

According to a release, the incident happened around 10:50 p.m. Wednesday, May 13 near 92nd Street and Pinnacle Peak Road.

The initial events started around 9 p.m. when officers responded to a home in the area of 9800 East Happy Valley Road for a trespassing call.

Police said that resident reported he had confronted a male subject who was attempting to gain entry to his home and ran the alleged suspect off. At 10:50 p.m., police received a call from a resident in the area of 9400 Easy Mariposa Grande Drive, reporting that an intruder had just been shot.

Responding officers found Cameron Yoe, 18, who matched the description from the earlier trespass incident.

Police said the second home was occupied by a 41-year-old man, his wife and three children. While working in an outbuilding on the property, the resident was alerted by the family dog of some type of activity in the home, according to the release.

Armed with a shotgun, the resident began to check the house, police said. As he entered the room of one of his children, he was confronted by Mr. Yoe, police said.

Mr. Yoe, holding a large piece of wood in a threatening manner, charged at the resident, police said. The resident, in an effort to protect himself and family, shot at and killed Mr. Yoe, police said.

Police said there is no indication of other suspects, none of the residents were injured and there is no danger to the surrounding community.

The investigation remains ongoing.
