FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Fayetteville police are trying to determine whether a man who was fatally shot after he broke into an apartment had some kind of impairment.
Investigators say David Butt killed 40-year-old Matthew Taylor early Sunday at the Lakeside Village Apartments.
When officers arrived, they found that Taylor had forced entry into the apartment through the window. They said Butt confronted Taylor with a handgun and was ordered to leave.
Taylor complied but later returned through the same window and was shot by Butt. He died inside the unit.
Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy, but say it's possible Taylor thought he was breaking into his own apartment.
The buildings at Lakeside Village Apartments are identical.
