SUMMERVILLE, SC -

Summerville police are investigating what appears to be a home invasion that occurred Wednesday morning.

According to police, 1 person was shot after 4 people forced their way into a home near Shamrock Drive and Myrtle Place in Summerville.

Witnesses told police that two or four suspects wearing masks forced their way into the home. The suspects were described as: males, wearing all black clothing and others wearing camouflage clothing.

"Somebody just kicked in the door and started shooting and I took off running," the man in the home, who asked to remain anonymous said.

He said they did not knock and gave no warning.

"They just kicked and came in. I took off running and I heard a gunshot. Then I came to the back and I didn't hear no noise, so I came back to the front and I saw that everybody was gone and I closed the door," he said.

He said he used furniture to block his doors as he called police just incase the masked men returned.

During the incident another man was shot. Witnesses say he was possibly just nearby in the street and ran toward a neighbor for help.

"I was in the yard working on the car. He came and he like was holding himself and said 'call 911. I got shot." I was like, 'What happened? What happened?' He said 'call 911 I got shot,'" the neighbor said.

"He said it was burning. He said it was burning. He said, 'I'm going to die. I got shot in my heart.' I said, 'You ain't get 'shoot' in your heart. If you get 'shoot' in your heart, you'd be dead," the neighbor explained.

The gunshot victim was transported to a local medical facility. There is no update on the condition of the victim at this time.

The man who was inside the home hopes to get back to normal.

"I just feel lucky man. People get out of situations like this," he said.

" I'm going to put it in God's hands. If it was like that, it was like that. I didn't die. I didn't get shot so I'm not worried about it," he said.

Police currently have no one in custody.

If anyone has information on the incident please call the Summerville Police Department @ 851-4100 or Crime Stoppers @ 554-1111.
