Deadly force should be employed only when it is the last remaining "safe" option for the defender.

Gather everyone in the most defensible location inside the house, call the Police and wait for them. If someone did gain entry then that escalates things significantly and might require you defending yourself. However, anytime someone is outside call the Police and let them handle the situation.
The above is very wise advice and it (or very similar) is the proper course of action. The only proper course in most cases, with a few exceptions where "holing up" is not possible.
