(WFAA-TV) Two men are dead after a failed home invasion robbery attempt south of Maypearl in Ellis County.

It all started around 1 p.m. when a woman alone in her two-story rural farmhouse on Bee Creek Road heard a rattle at the door. She told deputies she saw two men trying to break in — one of whom was dressed in camouflage with a gun strapped to his back.

The woman called her husband, who was pulling into the driveway at about the same time. He raced inside the house and got a gun.
