KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A home invasion set off a wild police chase that ended with one man dead.  

One of the two suspects taken into custody where their car crashed was seriously hurt and later died at the hospital.  Another ran off and still hasn't been found.

The homeowner is hopeful someone can help track him down.

It all started with a ring at the door about 11 a.m. Wednesday on the 600 block of 87th Street.

"I looked out to see if it was the UPS truck. I didn't see it. Then the doorbell kept ringing," said Marlon, the victim of an armed invasion who did not want to give his last name.

Still shaken from a terrifying morning, he suffered cuts and bruises he got after two men with a gun broke down his door.

"I shut down. All systems shut down. Nothing was going through my head other than getting this person out of my house and strongly enforcing they don't come back," he said.

So Marlon took a bat and went after them. Moments later, he called 911.

"The possibilities are endless of what could have happened," he said.

The two men ran off, but police were quick to track down their vehicle. The suspects vehicle crashed and flipped about 11 miles down the road near 90th Street and Raytown Road.

One suspect died from critical injuries. The other ran off and is still at large.

"I'm not living in fear, it could happen at anytime, anywhere," Marlon said.

As for Marlon, he's just grateful his wife and young kids weren't home. He hopes sharing his story will help police find the suspect and remind others to be vigilant.

"Awareness and always being ready even when you think you're safe," he said.

If anyone has information on the identity of the suspect who is still at large, please call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
