Several shots were then fired between them and both suffered multiple gunshot wounds. A female was also struck by a bullet.

The man who broke-in later died from his injuries while the other two are currently in the hospital.

No identities were released by the sheriff’s office and it remains unclear as of this writing when more information would be made available.
