Sacramento police spokesman Officer Doug Morse says when officers were called to a home around 3:30 a.m. Saturday they found that four people had been shot in an exchange of gunfire between the homeowner and the intruders.
One of the robbery suspects died at the scene, while the homeowner and two other suspects were hospitalized with non-life threatening wounds.
Police say one of the two suspects—21-year-old Thomas Ordonaz —has been arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. No other names have been released.
Morse says the robbery attempt took place while a number of young people were in the home during a sleepover, but that none were injured in the shooting.
