The occupant of an El Mirage, Arizona, home opened fire Saturday evening, killing one of four alleged armed home intruders.

3TV/CBS 5 reports the incident occurred in a neighborhood “near 2nd Avenue and Ventura Street.”

Police arrived on the scene to find one of the alleged intruders had been shot and fatally wounded.

12 News notes that first responders tried to save the wounded suspect, but he died at the scene. The other three suspects fled before police arrived.

The alleged intruders were simply described as “four armed suspects.”

Police do not believe there is a further threat to the community.
