1 Dead, 2 Hurt In Phoenix Shooting

Police say a homeowner confronted two men who forced their way into a house with the intention to rob it, shot and killed one of the men and injured the other.

The robbers injured the unidentified homeowner, who was rushed to the hospital, in the Monday morning incident at 2809 W. Almeria Road, Sgt. Andy Hill said.

His condition was not immediately known.

"I heard two shots, real loud, then saw dust on the ground," said Josie Carillo, a neighbor. "Don't know if it was a bullet or what."

Police said they were are especially concerned because children also live in the home.

"We believe two suspects came to rob the house, do a home invasion, and forced their way in," Hill said.

The other intruder who was hurt is believed to have jumped in a getaway vehicle parked down the street. Police gave no immediate description of the robber.

Man Accused In Home Invasion Found Dead

Phoenix police said they've found a man they wanted to question for an attempted home investigation on Monday, but he was dead of a gunshot wound.

Travis Jarred was found in his west Phoenix home Friday by police who broke in after his girlfriend called them worried after not seeing him since last Sunday, Detective Stacie Derge said

The 35-year-old was wanted for a home invasion Monday morning where a home's resident fatally shot a second intruder.

Derge identified the second dead man as 30-year-old Shaun Martine.

The victim, his wife, and several small children were asleep when the suspects forced their way in through the back door armed with a rifle and a knife. The home resident was stabbed, but grabbed a pistol and opened fire.

Martine died at the scene, and Jarred apparently drove home before dying.
