Convicted murderer fatally shot by resident during home invasion (VIDEO)

A North Carolina man with an extensive criminal record was slain as he and two others reportedly tried to rob an area home.

Local media reports that Ryan Jermaine Allen, 40, was shot and killed Monday in the course of a shootout after he and two other men forced their way into a home on West New Hope Road in Goldsboro around 8:30 p.m. One of the men in the home shot Allen, sparking a retreat by the suspects.

Responding police found the wounded Allen in a nearby wooded area and transported him to a hospital where he died during surgery.

An unidentified resident was shot in the exchange of gunfire and was injured.

Police confirm that Allen was convicted of manslaughter in 2007 and released from prison in 2013 only to be jailed again in 2017 for his role in an armed robbery. Since his release last June, he has been since processed by Goldsboro Police for common-law robbery in September.
