Around 2:30am Wednesday morning in Whitehaven, the quiet neighborhood best known for Elvis Presley’s Graceland estate, three suspects forced entry into a home with the intent of robbing it. Above is a Google Street view snapshot of the general vicinity.
Once inside, they were quickly met with an armed homeowner who shot one of them, killing him and causing the other two to flee. Those suspects are still at large.
When reporters arrived at the house, a gray car was being towed from the scene (it’s unclear why the car was being removed). Two children under the age of five are believed to have been in the home at the time of the break-in.

Here is a brief news video of the incident:
