TAMARAC, Fla. – A 22-year-old man trying to steal from cars in Tamarac was shot and killed early Saturday morning after a homeowner confronted him, authorities said.

Keyla Concepcion, a spokeswoman for the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, said the Frank Johnston, 64, was walking his dog around 5 a.m. when he saw Walder Saintelus trying to break into his car in the 9500 block of Northwest 82nd Court.

Johnston and Saintelus got into a fight, which ended with Johnston fatally shooting Saintelus, Concepcion said.

Saintelus of Tamarac was rushed to Broward Health North in Pompano Beach, but he later died of his injuries, Concepcion said.

Concepcion said Saintelus had been stealing from other cars in the neighborhood.

Johnston has not been arrested. Concepcion said the Broward County State Attorney’s Office will determine whether he will face any charges.
