LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities have identified a man found dead in a northwest Las Vegas backyard shortly after a 72-year-old homeowner reported someone was breaking in.

Clark County coroner's officials say 27-year-old Anthony C. Guerra died of a gunshot wound in the incident reported about 8 a.m. Monday.

Police say the homeowner reported the apparent burglary and fired a gun before police arrived.

Authorities arrived at the scene and arrested one suspect in a vehicle that had crashed into a patrol car. They say another would-be intruder fled on foot.

Officer Bill Cassell said Guerra had a gun with him.

Cassell says the homeowner may not face criminal charges. He wasn't identified by police.

Police say his home was burglarized before within the last several weeks.
