A male (Mr. Ramirez) stated he was returning home from a night club and began walking to the front door of his residence at the above address when he was approached by four to five armed males. According to the resident, the group of males began firing shots at him and he drew his own weapon and returned fire. The resident was hit once in the upper back area. He managed to shoot two of the males, one of whom was pronounced dead at the scene. The second wounded male suspect was picked up by a person(s) in a red Chevrolet Cruze. That male was later transported to the hospital and subsequently charged with aggravated assault.
