Police: Deadly Shooting Was Self-Defense

One man is dead, another behind bars after a violent home invasion Wednesday morning.

It happened at around 8:30 at the Glenneagles Apartments, on Lexington's Polo Club Boulevard.

Police say some would-be burglars knocked on a couple's door. When the residents answered the door, police say the people barged their way inside.

Police say one of the men who lived in the apartment was able to get his gun and both groups fired shots at each other.

In the end, one of the burglars was shot and killed. The coroner identified him as 28-year-old Brian D. Simpson. He does have an arrest record for burglary and robbery.

Police arrested 24-year-old Reginald L. Jones. He faces several charges including burglary and being a felon in possession of a handgun.

Police are still trying to identify a female suspect.

The residents of the apartment have not been charged.

Police say they have interviewed several witnesses in the neighborhood and still have more people they want to question. They're not saying what sparked this incident.
