OH: Home invasion suspect dies of gunshot wound
One man was killed and another shot in the leg when they, along with three others, allegedly participated in a home invasion Monday evening where the residents fought back.
Police said Tuesday that it is still a bit unclear what prompted the five [black] individuals, ages 19 to 23, to force their way into the Victoria Avenue home while brandishing a fake plastic gun. Fairborn Police Sgt. Paul Hicks said the only motive they’ve uncovered was that the subjects intended to rob the home.
Two Wright State University students who live at 1006 Victoria Ave. were home when the intruders entered.
Trent Seitz, 21, reportedly struggled with the men and was ordered to the floor. He called out for his roommate, Christopher Muse, who told police that he grabbed a gun and fired at the men. Ta’Vaun Fambrough, 19, was shot in the chest.
Three of the alleged intruders took off running, including 20-year-old Anthony Barwick II, who had been shot in the leg.
When police arrived they found those three individuals around the corner on West Parkwood Drive. Fambrough and another suspect were located at the Victoria address. Fambrough was taken to Miami Valley Hospital where he later died.
