CLEVELAND - Third District Police say a male was sleeping on his couch when he heard someone kick open a door.
The resident ran and grabbed a gun.
The suspect kicked open a second door to the home and that's when the resident fatally shot the male suspect.
Cleveland Police arrived at the scene and located the alleged intruder dead in the driveway.
Cleveland's Third District Police Department Captain Romoga said the suspect was armed with a knife.

Fella should have watched more daytime tv.
Never pick door number two.
If it's crime, and if it's Cleveland, it's an inner-city parasitic tribal member, nearly every time.
I wish Barach Hussein (or whatever his name is) would break into my house.
Wow, now that’s a blast from my past! As a kid I grew up on the 5700 block of Portage Ave; my parents moved to the ‘burbs in 66 b/c the neighborhood was changing. I don’t think I’d consider it part of Slavic Village as stated in the article.
I wonder if gangs are “gang-gentrifying” neighborhoods to drive out people who would be hostile to gangs, and make them more “gang friendly”, while expanding their territory?
Criminal mobs have long known that poverty and decay are their allies, so they oppose prosperity and order, which are “bad for business”.
They should pay him a bounty.
He'll just confiscate your IRAs and bank accounts instead.
No, it’s not. “North Broadway” really. My mom’s best friend’s parents owned the Marek Funeral Home up there. When I was born we lived on 65th near Francis (Warszawa neighborhood), which held out longer than Portage but not as long as Slavic Village. We moved to Maple Heights, which held out not much longer than Slavic Village.
The only ethnic neighborhood that is going to end up retaining its character is Little Italy, and that’s because the mob held off the parasites long enough for the artsy people to settle in there, and *they* have (well deserved) clout downtown.
Back on Portage Avenue, another one got shot. Not killed, I guess the shooter didn’t want a “vigil” on his front lawn...
The same guy shot them both! Cleveland needs more like him....
