TACOMA, Wash. —
A 19-year-old man was shot early Sunday morning by intruders breaking into his home, said Mark Fulghum of the Tacoma Police Department.
Police said a 911 call was received at 4:24 a.m. and officers responded to a home located in the 1000 block of Trafton Street.
According to police, two or three masked intruders, at least one with a gun, were dressed in black, and police said the intruders broke into the home by kicking in the door.
The victim’s uncle told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that his nephew was shot outside of the home and the man’s father chased the intruders with a baseball bat.
Relatives said seven people were inside of the home during the time of the incident, and said there was a previous incident at the home.
