TROTWOOD — UPDATE @ 7:09 a.m.
The victim in the shooting, a 29-year-old male, was shot twice and taken to Miami Valley Hospital with non life-threatening injuries, according to Deputy Chief John Porter, with the Trotwood Police Department.
Porter said two black male suspects forced entry into the home, demanding money from the male victim and his wife. The male was shot in the right ankle and lower left back/hip area, he said.
The wife and three young children, who also were in the home, were not injured. The suspects were wearing black masks; no other description was available.
Porter said the circumstances surrounding the incident leads him to believe it was not a random act.
Porter said the suspects got away property, and K9s were sent out in the area. The wife is being cooperative with investigators, he said.
