Resident Shot after Home Invasion

A man is in the hospital this morning after two men allegedly forced their way into his home and shot him.

The incident occurred at the Executive Manor Apartments near 33rd and Yale.

Police said the resident heard a knock on his door overnight, and when he cracked the door, two men knocked the door in.

The suspects reportedly had hoodies pulled tightly over their faces. One of the suspects held the resident at gunpoint while the other dug through the drawers of the home.

The suspects demanded money from the resident, but he said he didn't have any. When the suspects didn't find any money, they took his wallet and shot him, police said.

One of the gunshots hit the victim in the kneecap. A neighbor found the victim lying in pain on his couch. He was then was transported to Saint Francis.
