Union County authorities say the man shot to death when he broke into a home early Thursday was a 25-year-old from Monroe.

The sheriff’s office identified the man as Robby Charles Blount. He died of a gunshot wound suffered during what deputies call a “home invasion” about 1 a.m. Thursday at a residence in the 3400 block of Lanesboro Road, in the eastern part of the county north of Marshville.

The sheriff’s office says one family member, whom it will not identify, was able to get a shotgun and fired once, hitting Blount in the chest. Investigators say Blount ran into the front yard of the residence, where he collapsed and died.
