Home invasion, shooting in Independence

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — Police blocked off the area near McHenry Ave. and Truman Rd. Wednesday morning to investigate a home invasion in which someone was shot.

According to police, the homeowner reported a person broke into their home and they shot the person. That person then ran across the street and someone in the area reportedly took the person to the hospital.

Police did not say how severe the injuries were to the person who was shot, but the suspect was in the custody of police.

FOX 4′s Kathy Quinn is at the scene. She spoke to another neighbor who saw the commotion of police cars and immediately wanted to find her twin boys, who were spending the night at a friend’s house.

She said the neighborhood is normally quiet and they don’t see a lot of crime.

“Especially for a shooting. I know a couple of years ago something weird happened down the road where a woman’s husband or boyfriend got stabbed or something a couple summers ago but again, that was like a personal issue that happened, nothing within the neighborhood. This… shootings and everything, that’s very, very uncommon here. Very,” said Becca.

    Came here expecting a lot of ‘anti-gun’ comments. Very surprised and glad to see people supporting the legal and justified use of a firearm. The Castle Doctrine exists for a good reason, and that reason was exercised by this home owner.
