GLEN ARM, Md. -- A home intruder was shot and found dead more than a mile away from a house that he was trying to break into, police in Baltimore County said.

At about 9 a.m., police said they received a call for a burglary in progress with shots fired from a house in the 11500 block of Glen Arm Road in Glen Arm.

SkyTeam 11 HD Capt. Roy Taylor said police found numerous shell casings and a blood trail at the scene. Police said there were two bullet holes in the home's front window.

Investigators told 11 News that the female homeowner saw the man as she came out of a bedroom, and she fired her handgun at him.

"The burglar also fired several rounds. The suspect was struck by the homeowner," said Baltimore County police spokesman Lt. Rob McCullough. [Police search the vehicle in which the suspect was found dead.] Police search the vehicle in which the suspect was found dead.
