ROME, Maine (AP) _ Maine State Police say a man was shot to death in the town of Rome as he was attempting a home invasion. Police said 44-year-old Christopher Dennison of Livermore Falls was wearing a ski mask and brass knuckles as he broke into a mobile home on Foss Hill Lane on Saturday night.

Police said the homeowner, 48-year-old Richard Duffy, shot Dennison after a brief altercation with him in the living room. An autopsy by the State Medical Examiner's office showed Dennison died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Duffy and his teenage son were not hurt, and there was no indication that Duffy knew Dennison.

The Maine Attorney General's office will review the case.
