A home invasion turned deadly overnight in Philadelphia's Mayfair section.

Investigators say it was just after 11 p.m. Monday when three gunmen tried to break into a home on the 5700 block of Leonard Street.

Police say they fired through the front door as a husband and wife tried to keep it shut.

The man was hit and later died at the hospital.

Three teenagers, two young children, and another adult were in the home at the time of the shooting.

No one else was hurt.
