EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson County deputies said they are investigating a fatal shootout that killed an intruder and injured a homeowner with cerebral palsy in Easley early on Thursday.

Deputies said the call came in around 12:45 a.m. about two people being shot at a home on Woodhaven Court in Easley during a robbery.

When deputies got to the scene, they said one of the suspects and the homeowner were found shot. The suspect was dead, and the homeowner was taken to the hospital, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman said the homeowner is out of surgery and now talking to investigators. Deputies said the homeowner had non-life-threatening injuries.

Boseman said the man was wheelchair-bound prior to the incident due to cerebral palsy.

According to Boseman two other people were home at the time of the shooting, a 17-year-old and her mother, and they are being questioned.

Boseman identified the man killed as 26-year-old Darin Lowe, of Easley. He said Lowe was shot several times.
