Both victims shot were the two men who attempted to gain entry to the home, investigators say.
One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene; the other male was critically wounded and transported to a local hospital. All people in the house are cooperating with homicide detectives, according to a police spokesperson.
On Wednesday, the victim was identified as Brian Cobb, 34.
