Police say a homeowner shot and killed a man who crawled through the doggie door of a house in north Spokane.

Spokeswoman Monique Cotton says the intruder was armed with a large knife and had been threatening residents in a domestic dispute.

The man had crawled through the doggie door about 7 p.m. Wednesday and was coming at the homeowner when he fired a handgun. Officers attempted CPR but the intruder died at the scene. An autopsy on the Spokane man is being conducted Thursday.
