Two people were home at the time when five people stormed into the house with the intent to assault or rob the homeowner, according to Fairborn Sgt. Paul Hicks.
One of the residents was injured in the struggle. Hicks said two of the home invaders were shot. One victim was found with life threatening injuries inside the home and the other was found nearby on the street.
Police said officers detained the three other alleged home invaders for questioning.
Hicks said investigators are obtaining a search warrant for the home.
“It’s going to be a long night for the detectives,” Hicks said. “We’re investigating it as an aggravated burglary or robbery. We don’t know what the motive was at this point.”
