Suspect dead after home invasion on Wakefield near Clayton in Fresno County

FRESNO, Calif.

Deputies say a husband and wife were inside the home during the home invasion. They reported two men forcing their way in to their home.

Police say the husband shot one suspect dead. The husband was also shot. His condition is not known. Deputies say the man was airlifted to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center and was able to speak.

Deputies say in recent home invasions in the area suspects pretend to be police officers. Deputies say they are not sure if that is what happened Sunday night. "The prior cases are similar home invasion where people arrive with masks on their faces and say they're police officers and force their way into the home," Kathy Carreiro with the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies are looking for a second suspect that was reported. If you have any information you are asked to call the sheriff's office.
