CRYSTAL RIVER (FOX 13) -

Two men were wounded and one man is dead after a home invasion in Crystal River.

The Citrus County Sheriff's Office says the man who was killed was one of two suspects who invaded a home at 11195 West Cedar Lake Drive overnight.  

According to investigators, a 62-year-old woman and her 25-year-old son live in the home.

The two suspects knocked on the door and ordered the mother to the floor. Hearing this, the sheriff's office said, the son came out from a back room armed with a gun.

The suspects and the son exchanged gunfire and shot each other, deputies said. One suspect -- later identified by deputies as Shawn Michael Wright, 42 -- went out into the front yard where he died, while the other fled the scene in an unknown vehicle.

He is described as a black male wearing denim pants and a dark-colored shirt.  

If you have information on this investigation, the sheriff's office asks that you call Crime Stoppers of Citrus County.
