A FOX 10 EXCLUSIVE

PHOENIX -- It was a wild weekend for a valley homeowner.  He returns home from work to find an intruder in his home.  That homeowner, armed with a gun, fired shots at the suspect -- killing him.

Now we're hearing the 911 call that the homeowner made to police just moments after he pulled the trigger.

We went to the homeowner's house and talked to him.  He's really upset about the shooting and did not want to talk on-camera.

But what he told us is exactly the same story he told a 911 operator when he called right after the shooting.

Operator: "911 where is your emergency?"

Homeowner: "I just got home from work.  There's a burglar inside.  Send an ambulance.  I shot him."

Breathless and panicked, a homeowner told a 911 operator he just walked in on a burglar inside of his house and shot him.  The security guard had just returned home from work. He says he saw lights on inside of his house and thought that was strange, so he grabbed a personal gun he keeps in his truck -- then walked inside.

Homeowner: "There was a side door open. I just unlocked my house.  There was a man there.. he said he was on drugs and he was walking at me.. anyway I need paramedics.  I need the police department.  I got my handgun out of my truck and.. I'm sorry.. I shot him."

Police found 22-year-old Aaron Fisher dead inside the house.  The homeowner fired one shot, then ran to a neighbor's house to call for help.  He says Fisher told him he's addicted to drugs before the shooting.  It all happened near 30th Avenue and Cactus.

Homeowner: "I don't know where he is.. now it's possible.. went out the back door."

Operator: "So you think he could have left?"

Homeowner: "He could have left because I'm at my neighbor's house.  I'm watching my front door.  I need somebody right now.  I'm going to have a nervous breakdown.  Please get somebody here right away."

Police say it looks like the homeowner was just trying to defend himself.

The homeowner also told us he works as a security guard, but isn't armed at work.

As for Fisher, he's been arrested before -- accused of burglary and selling stolen goods.
