JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville man and woman are in stable condition after a shootout with an intruder that broke into their home Friday morning. Police say the suspect, 21-year-old Trevel Yates, was killed during the assault.

The pair had just woken up when they heard a loud noise of someone breaking in the back door, Sgt. Michael Paul reported. The 50-year-old man fought with Yates and was hit several times with a blunt object. The man retrieved a firearm and exchanged gunfire with the suspect. The 60-year-old woman also got a gun and shot at the suspect.

A child in the home was unharmed.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death and the State Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
