Authorities say a Keller firefighter who fatally shot a man who broke into his North Texas home has been placed on administrative leave.

Saginaw police spokesman Damon Ing says David Wilson told police he walked in on a burglar in his home about 10 miles north of Fort Worth on Monday afternoon.

Keller City Manager Dan O'Leary told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Wilson has been with the fire department for five years.

O'Leary says the firefighter and paramedic is on leave while police investigate the shooting.

The burglary suspect's name has not been released.
