Man Shot During Early Morning Home Invasion in Sparks

Posted: Updated:

Sparks Police say they are investigating a home invasion that left a 70-year-old man injured last weekend.

Police say they were called to a report of a home invasion on Eric Avenue last Saturday just before 5:30am. When they arrived, police learned that numerous suspects forced their way inside the home, demanded specific items from the homeowners, and then ransacked the residence looking for those undisclosed items.

At some point during the robbery, police say the Vietnam War veteran was shot during a struggle over a weapon with one of the suspects.

He was treated for non life threatening injuries.

Police say they do not believe the home invasion was a random act, and they say evidence suggests the location was intentionally targeted.
