A Littleton resident who shot and killed a man armed with a gun Saturday night appears to have acted in self-defense, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

Stan Collins, 59, was killed after investigators believe he entered a home in the 9000 block of Fraser River Street around 6:15 p.m. Saturday and was shot to death by someone who lived in the home. The resident who killed Collins has not been publicly named and no charges have been filed.
