LAPORTE COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - A man is dead after a reported burglary early Thursday morning in LaPorte County.

Deputies were called just after 3:30 a.m. to a home in the 2000 block of E. State Road 4 regarding a burglary in progress.

Moments after they arrived, a gunshot was heard coming from the area of the home. The residents of the home were removed, and deputies cleared the interior of it. While doing so, deputies found a dead man.

On Friday, police identified the deceased man as 42-year-old Jacob Borders. Police say there appears to be no prior association between the residents of the home and Borders. None of the residents were injured.

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division have taken control of the investigation, which remains open and ongoing.
