A 56-year-old Issaquah man shot an intruder breaking into his home May 3.

In the 18500 block of Northwest Montreux Drive, the as-yet unidentified homeowner heard someone ringing his doorbell just before 1 p.m. After failing to recognize the man who appeared to be in his mid-20s who was outside his door, the homeowner ignored it.
