2 intruders killed at WA marijuana grow home

PUYALLUP, WA (AP) -

Two people have been killed at a luxury home near Puyallup where the Pierce County sheriff's office says there was a marijuana growing operation.

Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the homeowner called just before 8 a.m. Thursday to report a break-in and then called back a few minutes later to say shots were fired.

The arriving deputy found two armed people with masks on their faces dead on the floor of a six-car garage.

Troyer says the 35-year-old homeowner and a 9-year-old boy who was inside at the time are OK.

On the day marijuana became legal in Washington, Troyer says grow operations are dangerous.
