Tazewell County Sheriff Jeff Lower said a rural Delavan homeowner shot and killed a man in self-defense Thursday night.
Deputies received a disturbance call from a house on Boynton Road just after 8 p.m. The homeowner, Luke P. Taylor, reportedly heard someone yelling outside and went to investigate.
Lower said the man on his property, 41-year-old Daniel Williamson of San Jose, threatened Taylor, charged at him, and bit his face and head before the homeowner shot them.
