Good Gun Control Dead End Edition
Trotwood Police were called to a home at the dead end of Atlas Road around 6:00 Monday morning.
he three suspects were caught on home surveillance outside the residence, before they kicked their way inside.
Police say two kids were asleep inside the home in the room where the invaders kicked their way in.
"Most of them woke up to the sound of them forcing entry into the home they kicked the back door," said Capt. Porter.
The suspects headed straight for the female who called 9-1-1.
"He hit me in the head with the gun 'cause I was in the laundry room," the caller stated.
The victim told Trotwood Police the suspects then demanded she lead them to "the money," and that she complied, leading them into a back room where a safe was located and two other kids were sleeping.
Trotwood Police said two of the suspects tried to steal a safe, while the third held the victim and two kids at gunpoint. They say the homeowner was able to get away and grab a gun she had hidden in the room, then started firing shots at the suspects.
"I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran!" the homeowner told dispatchers.
One suspect was killed by the gunfire, and was later found outside by Trotwood Police.
