An Arizona homeowner shot and killed two people trying to break into his home on Saturday morning, according to police.

Officers responded to 911 calls coming from a street on Phoenix around 7:45 a.m. and found two men with gunshot wounds on the ground in front of a home. Witnesses told police the shooter was inside the home next to where the men were lying, Sgt. Philip Krynsky of the Phoenix Police Department said, according to FOX 10.

"The officers were able to successfully carry the men to await paramedics," Krynsky said. "The officers were able to communicate with the three occupants of the home and they were detained peacefully. The two men were taken to separate hospitals where they both died from their injuries."
