A man and a woman awoke in the middle of the night to the sounds of what they figured to be someone breaking into their home. When they went to investigate, their suspicions were correct; two masked men had entered their home.
One of the intruders approached the man, demanding money and jewelry, and then pistol whipped him, giving the woman time to grab their shotgun.
The woman handed the gun to the man, and he and the suspects exchanged fire. One of the intruders fled, and the other was fatally shot and found by police in the driveway of the home. The male resident sustained minor injuries.
