GRAND RAPIDS -- A well-known local photographer shot an intruder to death early Monday morning when the man broke into the gallery, according to police.
About 12:30 a.m. Monday, people who live in apartments above the photography shop on Division Avenue just north of Cherry Street heard breaking glass and a popping sound, and called 911.
Detectives say a man smashed the front window to get in, waking up the business owner who lives just behind the shop.
Allen Stevenson, 43, of Muskegon Heights confronted the owner, Jeff Dykehouse, who then allegedly shot the intruder. Stevenson was dying on the floor when police arrived on scene and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
