FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - One man is dead and four others in jail after an attempted home invasion in Fairborn Monday afternoon.
Police responded to the house at 1006 Victoria Avenue around 5 p.m. after a neighbor heard gunshots called 911.
"The resident decided to fight back and shot two of the men," said Sergeant Paul Hicks, with the Fairborn Police Department.
Ta'Vaun Fambrough, 19, of Dayton died at Miami Valley Hospital from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Anthony Barwick, 20, of Dayton, was shot in the leg. He was treated and released into police custody. Barwick, along with London Norman, 23, Deron McGuire Jr., 23, and Tavaughn Lewis, 19, the other men police said were involved in the home invasion, are all being held in the Greene County Jail on charges of felony aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, and kidnapping.
Police said the men went to the house with the intent to rob the occupants. They said Barwick pointed a plastic gun at Trent Seitz and Christopher Muse. That's when investigators said Muse shot Barwick in the leg and Fambrough in the chest.
"I saw four men running out of the house, yelling hysterically at one another," said Bud Florkey. "One man told the others he had been shot, so I called for help."
Police and medics arrived to find Fambrough shot inside the home, and Barwick lying in the road a block away from the home on Harvard Avenue.
"He was just lying in the middle of the road," said Tamara Ferguson, who lives on Harvard Avenue.
Police took Seitz and Muse into custody for questioning, but have not filed any charges against the two.
The four men in custody were arraigned Tuesday in Fairborn Municipal Court.
