A deadly shootout between burglars and a homeowner took place Thursday night, just after 9 p.m., on Tucson's east side, near I-10 and Wilmot Road.

Police say three men busted into a home in a quiet new neighborhood. They then shot the homeowner in the arm; the homeowner returned fire and hit one of the burglars, who later died at a local hospital.  According to Tucson police, when they arrived, the 29 year-old home owner and his two year-old daughter had taken refuge in a bathroom.  The home owner suffered minor injuries and the little girl was not hurt.

Police are looking for two suspects, but have not released a description.  Investigators say they do not know what the relationship is between the home owner and the suspects.
