About 5:30 a.m. on May 27, several people forced their way into a home in Orosi.
A gun battle took place when a 22-year-old man in the home opened fire to protect himself and three younger siblings, the sheriff's office said.
Alleged robber Victor Deharo, 21, of Orosi, was shot and killed in the incident. He died at the scene.
