MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. —

A Maple Valley homeowner shot and killed a man and wounded a woman he said were breaking into his property.

King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West says the man called 911 about 4 a.m. Friday to report he heard people and banging noises. He called back to say he shot two people.

Deputies arrived to find a dead man and wounded woman. She was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition.

West says she had been shot once with a handgun.

West says the 66-year-old homeowner was not hurt. She says he has previously reported thefts and burglaries on his property where he has several sheds about 10 acres.
