One man is dead and another is on the run after an attempted home invasion Sunday night on the city's east side. It happened in an apartment in the 3300 block of East 10th Street near Brookside Middle School.

Police say the two men tried to enter one of the units. That's when the boyfriend of the woman living in that apartment pulled out a gun and fired, killing one of the suspects.

The woman's friend says she's shocked over what happened.

"He said a guy just tried to rob me. I said, 'someone down the street said someone just got shot and killed.' I said, 'you shot the guy?' He said, 'yeah.' I said, 'Is he dead?' He said, 'I believe so,'" said Christina Kasey.

Police say the female resident is eight and a half months pregnant and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

No charges have been filed in this case.
