NORTH PORT, Fla.- Christopher Hays, 27, of Venice, was shot and killed after he reportedly broke into a North Port home on Saturday.
North Port Police arrived on the 6000 block of Deming Ave. just after midnight and determined that Hays was fatally shot by 27-year-old Joseph Cataliotione, one of the residents of the home, after he forced entry inside.
Some of the occupants of the home knew Hays. Because the incident was not a random occupied burglary, police will not be increasing patrol efforts in the area.
The investigation continues.
