Three men are in custody after deputies say they conducted an armed robbery at a Golden Gate Estates home Tuesday morning.

A man who lives at the house quickly obtained a gun as the suspects forced their way into the house at 6735 Everglades Blvd. N. shortly before 7:15 a.m. Shots were exchanged and one of the suspects was shot in the shoulder. All of them ran from the house.

Deputies, including K-9 units and aviation units, searched through nearby wooded areas and eventually found the suspects. The injured suspect was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers for treatment.

The occupants of the home were not injured.
