A Fulton County homeowner shot and killed an intruder early Friday morning. 

Investigators said around 2 a.m. Friday three men tried to enter a home in the 2100 block of Rochelle Way in unincorporated College Park.  Police said the intruders didn't know the homeowner was awake and armed.  

The home owner exchanged gunfire with the suspects, killing one of them. That suspect, described as an adult male, died in the front yard. His name hasn't been released.

The other two suspect escaped. Police don't have a good description on them, but think it is possible they are still in the area. Those suspects are considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators continued to work the scene, collecting evidence and interviewing the home owner.  They said it's too early to know if he'll face any charges.
