Homeowner, Suspect Shot During Home Invasion, More Suspects Sought

A home invasion early this morning ended with a gun battle in a gated community in the southwest valley near Robindale and Lindell.

Metro says a woman was shot several times inside her home before her boyfriend killed one of the suspects. But two suspects are still at large and police say they are armed and dangerous.

Normally a quiet neighborhood, the Encantana gated community turned into a huge crime scene just before day break.

Metro spokesman Bill Cassell said, “Bullets struck several nearby residences.”

Police say when the woman arrived home, she was accosted by three men.

“Her husband, who was inside the residence, came to her assistance and there was an exchange of gunfire inside the residence,” Bill Cassell continued.

The woman was caught in the crossfire. She was shot and injured. One suspect was shot dead at the home. The two other suspects took off.

Police say the woman is hospitalized with multiple wounds, but is expected to survive.

Cassell said, “It’s unknown at this point who fired the rounds that struck her.”
