Stolen Shotgun Hits Trigger on Stolen Rifle, Kills Burglary Suspect

INDEPENDENCE, Ore. (AP) — A burglar died when a rifle he'd just stolen was jostled and fired during a ride down a bumpy farm road, Polk County authorities say.

Detective John Williams says investigators found a shotgun and the rifle Sunday morning, side by side on the passenger-side floorboard of a stolen farm truck, barrels pointed at the driver.

Williams says it appears that a lever on the shotgun got into the trigger guard of the rifle and fired it.
