ORIGINAL. Last night Lafayette Police were called out to the 200 block of California Street after a shooting happened.  Lafayette Police found a 46-year-old man from Lafayette dead in the backyard.

Police say the shooter told them he saw someone going into his home from across the street without his permission.  The homeowner allegedly armed himself with a gun and went there to check out what was happening at his home.
