One of two suspects in a Jeffrey Manor home invasion was fatally shot Tuesday night, Chicago police said.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A suspect in a home invasion on Chicago's South Side Tuesday night was fatally shot during the incident, according to CPD. Another escaped.

A 49-year-old man heard a loud disturbance at his front door just after 11 p.m. in the 9500-block of South Calhoun Avenue in the Jeffrey Manor neighborhood, Chicago police said. When he went to investigate, two masked, armed individuals forced their way inside, according to CPD.

The man shouted for help, and two other men, ages 25 and 24, heard the commotion from the basement and went upstairs.

Chicago police said the three men in the home fought with the two home invaders, and during the scuffle, shots were fired from one of the home invader's weapons.

One of the suspects was shot in the chest and died at the scene, according to CPD.
