Trotwood police say three males kicked in the back door of a home on Atlas Drive. They forced a woman who was doing laundry into a back room with two children. two other children were asleep on a couch. The ages of the children range from 10 to 16 years old.
While one of the suspects held the woman at gunpoint with a TEC-9 automatic submachine gun, Trotwood Police Capt. John Porter said the two other suspects tried to steal a safe in the home.
Porter said the woman grabbed a gun in the home and shot the armed suspect and all three then fled the home.
When police arrived, they say they found one suspect dead in a neighbor’s side yard. Police say they found TEC-9 under him.
The other two suspects fled the area in an unknown vehicle.
Police say an autopsy found that the suspect died of a single gunshot to the left shoulder. That bullet pierced a major artery before exiting the right shoulder.
A second gun, a semi-automatic handgun, was recovered in the house. Porter said investigators believe it belonged to one of the suspects who left it behind while trying to carry the safe out of the house.
