Police said he told investigators the person took several steps toward him, so he fired and the burglar dropped his pickax and ran toward the park behind his home. He allegedly told officers that he fired again “into the night” in the direction of the park then went back to bed.

Meyer got up around 7 a.m. Thursday and thought he saw “a black bag” in the park, and upon closer inspection, he found the man’s body. His wife then called an attorney, seeking advice, before her husband called 911 to report he was the victim of a crime and that medical help was needed, according to the affidavit.

When officers responded to Meyer’s call at 5409 Philip Ave., they found the unidentified suspect in the backyard, face down on the ground with a gunshot wound to the back of his neck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Homicide detectives determined Meyer was guilty after their preliminary investigation.
