Tucson man shoots, kills intruder, deputies say

  • Updated

A 34-year-old man died Friday night after he was shot at a southwest-side home, authorities said.

Loran Langston was pronounced dead at a local hospital after he was shot at a home in the 8100 block of West Savi Place, near West Bopp and South San Joaquin roads, said Deputy Renee Carlson, a Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman.

The homeowner, Brian Dillon, 40, reportedly shot Langston after he returned home from the store and found Langston on his property, Carlson said in a news release.

An argument ensued and escalated into a fight between the two men.

Investigators said Dillon retrieved his gun and shot Langston in the chest one time.

Deputies took Dillon into custody but released him after he claimed self-defense.

There was no known relationship between the two men, although they lived closed to one another.

Homicide detectives are still investigating.
