The three robbers burst into the man's home around 11:15 a.m. May 31 in the 1600 block of West 215th Street and got into a physical altercation with the victim, who grabbed a handgun from one suspect and shot him in the chest. The 25-year-old Hispanic male was taken to a nearby hospital where he died. His identity has not yet been released.
