A home invasion turns deadly when the homeowner takes the safety of her family into her own hands.
One of three home invasion suspect was shot and killed during the incident, and has been identified by the Montgomery County Coroner's Office as Azikiwe Presley, 29, of Dayton.
Trotwood Police were called to a home at the dead end of Atlas Road around 6:00 Monday morning.
Police tell FOX 45 three masked men armed with firearms forcibly entered and attempted to rob the homeowner.
"Any time you have a homicide or a home invasion of this magnitude it's unusual unless they're looking for something specific," said Trotwood Police Capt. John Porter.
Porter said the homeowner called 9-1-1.
"I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran," the female caller told dispatchers.
