FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The Warren County Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of a one of the suspects involving a home invasion in Franklin Township.

Police say two men entered a home on Franklin-Madison Road early Saturday morning.

The homeowner told  FOX19 he was sleeping on the couch at 6:45 Saturday morning when he woke up to find a man holding a hand over his mouth and saying "don't talk; we just want your money."

A second man had gone upstairs where the man's wife and daughter were sleeping.

What the men didn't know was the homeowner was sleeping with his gun close by.  He started fighting with the man who was holding him, grabbed a revolver, and fired it in his general direction.  He believes he hit the man, because there were blood drops in the house, but it's possible that could be his own blood, because he was seriously scratched during the fight.

When the gun went off, the second suspect came running down the stairs and both of them fled.

At least some planning went into the break-in: the homeowner believes the suspects got the garage door opener from the car, used it to get in the garage, and used some WD-40 to make sure the door into the home didn't squeak.

Both suspects are white men. The first suspect, in the composite sketch, is described as 30 to 35 years old, 5'8" to 5'9" with brown hair and facial hair and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. The second suspect is in his late 20's to early 30's, 5'6" and 160 pounds and wearing a gray knit cap, puffy jacket and thick mustache.

Deputies from the Warren County Sheriff's Office are investigating the case.
