Home invasion suspect killed in shootout with police

LANSING, Mich. -- A 24-year old Lansing man is dead after exchanging gunfire with police officers late Christmas Eve, CBS affiliate WLNS reported.

The incident began as a home invasion on the city's southwest side, the station reported.

Once police learned someone had broken into the house shortly after 7:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve, they surrounded it and tried to convince the man to come out.

About two hours later, police reportedly spotted flames inside the house and that's when officers tried to enter the home. Officers had to leave when the man started shooting at them.

Minutes later, the man again confronted police while armed and police returned fire, killing the suspect.
