PONTIAC, Mich. -- Authorities say a homeowner was fatally shot during a home invasion while his wife, six-month-old child and two brothers were at the home.

Sources tell FOX 2's Roop Raj the victim is 27-year-old Adrian Contreras.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Department says one suspect was hospitalized after being wounded during the early Monday attack while another was captured nearby along with a third person.

Investigators say they believe the wounded suspect was shot by someone in the home in the 800 block of Inglewood in self-defense.  Raj reports that one of Contreras' brothers fired at the suspects.

We're told Contreras' wife and child were found safe at a nearby home after escaping.  Other adults in the home weren't injured.

The shooting is under investigation. The sheriff's department says Oakland County Animal Control officers helped remove four pit bulls from the home.

Anyone interested in helping the family pay for the funeral can make a contribution at any PNC Bank under the Adrian Contreras Memorial Fund.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
