Investigators said they were called to the home on Browns Way around 6 p.m.
Police said a masked man tried to force his way into the home by firing shots through the front door. Investigators said one man inside of the home was shot in the face.
According to police, another man inside of the house grabbed a gun and fired shots at the intruder, Michael Andrews, of East Hills. The second victim was also shot, police said.

Obviously, this was not in Texas!
It sure sounds like there were no innocents at the home.
