CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- An apparent robber was shot and killed late Tuesday night during a home invasion in Jeffery Manor on the South Side, according to Chicago police.

According to Chicago police, the home invader was not shot with a homeowner's gun. He was killed with one of the guns he and an accomplice had brought into the home on 95th and Calhoun in the Jeffery Manor neighborhood.

A 49-year old resident of the home of 95th and Calhoun told officers he heard a loud sound at the front door about 11 p.m. He opened the door and two masked men forced their way in.

The man then yelled for help and two other men, 24 and 25, ran up from the basement, police said. The three began to fight with the masked men; and a gun discharged several times, wounding one of the residents and killing one of the home invaders.

One of the home invaders, who was struck in the chest, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The second robber ran off and remains at large.

The 25-year-old man was struck in the arm and taken to Trinity Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
