Accused of manslaughter for killing burglar who broke into his home



A 22-year-old man is facing murder charges after he shot and killed a man who was allegedly trying to rob his family's home in Milton, Ontario, his lawyer says.


The incident occurred on Feb. 19 around 5 a.m. at a residence on Gibson Crescent, which is near Ontario Street South and Louis St. Laurent Avenue.


According to the Halton Regional Police Service, a group of suspects "with the intent to commit a burglary" approached the home in question.


Once inside, they were reportedly confronted by an occupant and then several shots were fired inside the home. One man was pronounced dead at the scene.


Ali Mian, who lives in the home with his single mother, now faces second-degree murder charges, his attorney says.


In a statement provided to CP24.com, criminal defense attorney Jag Virk said his client "shot an intruder who broke into his home and attacked his mother."


"He owns a registered firearm and used his gun legally against an armed intruder," Virk said.


"He should not be charged with murder for protecting his mother from someone who broke into her home."


Virk said Mian's intent was "not to kill the intruder, as he only shot him once."


Halton police said the investigation is ongoing and detectives are seeking information on three outstanding suspects who they said fled the scene in a light-colored Dodge Charger with a sunroof and black wheels.
