“The victim didn’t know who it was, he was having a hard time seeing who was at the front door, so he waited a little bit then after a few moments, he heard kicking and then that’s when both suspects entered into the residence,” Peters said.

Fortunately, the victim managed to grab a gun and open fire on the suspects. One was killed at the scene, while the other immediately fled. He remains at large.
