St. Louis: Husband and wife use guns to stop two armed men from entering their home

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
A husband and wife armed with guns were able to stave off an apparent home invasion Monday night, police said.
One man was killed and a second taken to a hospital in the incident, which happened about 11 p.m. . . .
According to police, a 17-year-old girl who lived at the home was outside retrieving something from her car when she was approached by two armed men who demanded she return to her residence.
The teen's father, 34, saw the men walking with his daughter, got his firearm and fired several shots at them, striking both of the men as they entered his home. The teen's mother, 34, also retrieved a gun and fired once at the men, but did not hit them, police said.
One of the men, Terrell Johnson, 31 . . . collapsed on the living room floor and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The second man . . . was treated for gunshot wounds to the chest and both thighs. . . .
