Police have identified a suspected burglar shot and killed earlier this month by an Albuquerque homeowner. 

The homeowner told police his alarm in the garage went off at his home near Tramway and Copper. 

When he went to check it, he said 22-year-old Clayton Jenkins was trying to break in, so he shot him. 

Jenkins later died. 

According to court records, Jenkins does not have a criminal history in New Mexico. His Facebook page says he had attended Manzano High School. 

The case has been forwarded to the District Attorney to determine if charges will be filed against the homeowner.
