Homeowner, burglary suspects in shootout; 1 dead

Phoenix police found one man dead and another shot after responding to a residence near 91st Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road.

At about 9 p.m. on Sunday, police received a call to a shooting at the residence, where they discovered a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound and a 20-year-old man in another room dead from gunshot wounds, police said.

The 25-year-old homeowner told police he was home alone when he saw three men in his backyard, armed and looking to break into the residence. The resident traded gunfire with the suspected intruders, resulting in the gunshot wounds.

Two of the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle, police said.

Police did not release information about the suspects or their vehicle as the investigation is ongoing.
