The victim was at home when he heard a knock at the door. When he answered, three unknown males attempted to force their way into the apartment. The victim secured the door; however, the suspects kicked it in, causing significant damage. During this time, suspect(s) fired weapons, striking the victim. The suspects then fled the area. A white vehicle, possibly a Nissan or Kia, with plastic silver/chrome-style rims may have been associated with them. The suspects did not take anything from the home, and none of the other people in the residence or apartment complex were injured.
