A man who allegedly forced his way into a Newport Beach home Thursday was fatally shot by someone inside.

Police were called just before 4:15 a.m. to Indus Street and Redlands Drive regarding a report of a man with “mental health issues” or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Heather Rangel, a spokeswoman for Newport Beach police.

The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, forced his way into a nearby residence and was shot by an occupant as officers were responding to the call, Rangel alleged.
