MOUNT AIRY, OH (FOX19) -

A suspect died and a resident suffered serious injuries when an attempted home invasion robbery ended in gunfire early Friday, Cincinnati police said

Officers responded to a report of a shooting with multiple victims at an apartment in the 2300 block of West North Bend Road at 3:30 a.m.

When they arrived, they found two men with gunshot wounds, said Lt. Chris Ruehmer, the night chief.

The resident, 26, exchanged gunfire with three masked suspects who were all armed, said Lt. Steve Saunders.

The resident shot the suspect, Damien Smith, and the resident also was shot multiple times during the melee.

The resident, who suffered life-threatening injuries, called 911 for help after he was shot, Saunders said.

Both shooting victims were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Smith, 27, was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after he arrived, police said.

The other two other suspects remain at large. A K-9 was in the area searching early Friday, but no arrests were announced.

The Homicide Unit has interviewed a person of interest. 

Authorities also removed a dog from the apartment shortly after the shooting.

Ruehmer said he didn't think anything was taken during the attempted robbery.

"I don't think it got that far," he said.

The homicide remains under investigation.
