Michigan State Police say a masked 21-year-old suspect did not survive the gun injury he received during an alleged home invasion attempt on Sunday night.

The incident occurred in Tawas City, Michigan, around 8:20 a.m.

According to WILX, “Special 1st Lt. David Kaiser says the 66-year-old Tawas City man was home Sunday night when two men wearing masks and brandishing knives entered and tried to rob him.” The homeowner responded by grabbing a rifle and opening fire, striking both suspects.

WNEM reports that “the first suspect, a 21-year-old man, was still wearing a mask and found dead at the scene.” The second suspect–a 29-year-old male–was wounded but expected to survive. He was taken to a hospital in a Saginaw.

The homeowner was not injured.

The first calls that police received on the incident were of a man going door to door with a rifle. They later determined it was the homeowner seeking help after the alleged invasion had ended.
