This week Crime Stoppers is looking for information about a home invasion and shooting that occurred on October 4th at 11 at night at the 800 block of S 24th Street. The victim, after hearing a knock at his door, opened the door thinking he knew who was there. Upon opening the door, two black males entered and one produced a semi automatic handgun and fired a shot at him striking him in the hip. The armed suspect was tall and was wearing a red cap. The suspects then took an I-Phone 5s and a Playstation 3 before leaving the residence. The victim was hospitalized for the non life threatening injury.
