Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Sean Kennedy’s father says the 22-year-old had been drinking at a party Sunday night when he drove to the wrong Colorado Springs home, pounded on the back door and was fatally shot.

Police said Monday they plan to give the case to the district attorney’s office to decide whether the homeowner will be protected under Colorado’s “Make My Day” law, which allows people to use deadly force in self-defense in their homes.

Grant Kennedy says his son moved to the neighborhood four months ago. He says Sean Kennedy had too much to drink and apparently was confused about which house was his.

Sean Kennedy lived about a block from where he was shot.

Officers were called to the home at 9:50 p.m. Sunday on a report of a burglary in process. They found Kennedy in the backyard. He had been shot once. Police say two people were in the home; their names haven’t been released.
