Three people forced their way into a Memphis home, but only two made it out alive after someone in the residence opened fire.
Around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning, the suspects stormed their way into a residence on North Stevens Circle. One of the suspects is dead -- and the two others are on the run.
Five people, including a toddler, were inside the home. At some point, someone grabbed a gun and started shooting.
A man who was in the house spoke with FOX13. He was too afraid to show his face.
"They rushed the house and they came after us,' he explained.

The man told FOX13 the suspects demanded money and then started firing.
"Once I started hearing multiple gunshots, I just thought everyone was dead," he said.
With the men still in the home and his family in danger, the man took drastic measures to contact police. He jumped out a window and ran to the nearest precinct
When officers arrived at the home, they found a man dead outside. It was one of the suspects. The two others escaped.
