An Ohio woman faced a terrifying situation on Monday morning. A mother, home with her children was confronted by three armed, masked home invaders, all armed with guns.
The suspects pistol whipped the woman and demanded to be led to “the money”. The woman apparently did have a safe in the house, and began leading the three men to it.
While two of the men tried to move the safe and a third held the mother and children at gunpoint, she managed to run and grab a nearby gun. She opened fire. According to the 911 call, this is what happened next.
“I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran,” the female caller told dispatchers. “They all three had guns, I’m confused … they must not have had bullets because after I pulled the trigger they just took off, instead of firing back. I don’t know if I hit one or not, I don’t see blood anywhere.” Read More

TROTWOOD — A home invasion turns deadly when the homeowner takes the safety of her family into her own hands.
One of three home invasion suspect was shot and killed during the incident, and has been identified by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office as Azikiwe Presley, 29, of Dayton.
Trotwood Police were called to a home at the dead end of Atlas Road around 6:00 Monday morning.
Police tell FOX 45 three masked men armed with firearms forcibly entered and attempted to rob the homeowner.
“Any time you have a homicide or a home invasion of this magnitude it’s unusual unless they’re looking for something specific,” said Trotwood Police Capt. John Porter.
Porter said the homeowner called 9-1-1.
“I got my gun and I started shooting and they ran,” the female caller told dispatchers. “They all three had guns, I’m confused … they must not have had bullets because after I pulled the trigger they just took off, instead of firing back. I don’t know if I hit one or not, I don’t see blood anywhere.”
The 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.
Police say the deceased is a male in his 20s from the Dayton area, and that he was in the yard between the victim’s home and another house, still armed with a TEC 9 submachine gun.
Two suspects got away, and police are still looking for them.
The victim told police she did not know what kind of vehicle the suspects left in, because it was not parked in view of her home.
Trotwood Police spent Monday evening questioning neighbors on nearby Glen Helen Road if they had any information about the invasion.
