Authorities are searching for four men who broke into a home Friday night and assaulted and threatened its occupants.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, the men entered the home in the 3400 block of Old McDuffie Road about 11:15 p.m.

A resident said that as he was fighting with one of the intruders the man removed a small revolver from his pants and shot at him twice, striking him once on the left hand.

A 14-year-old in the home said that when he heard the suspects kick in the front door he got under the bed in the bedroom to hide. Two of the intruders picked up the bed and threw it across the room.

One then pointed a silver handgun at him and placed a book bag over his face. The teenager said that the suspect told him to be quiet or he would shoot him.

The complainant was not sure if anything was taken. He was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital. A spokeswoman said today that she had no information on his condition.

One suspect is described as black, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 250 pounds. He was wearing a red shirt over his face and had a small revolver. The second suspect is described black, about 30 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall and 200 pounds. He was wearing a navy blue shirt and had a silver-colored handgun.

The third suspect was black, wearing a white T-shirt, and the fourth suspect was also black, about 6 feet tall and was wearing a blue shirt over his face.

Obviously ACORN CENSUS takers. Apparently these folks did not answer all of the questions on the mail in card.

I am glad no one in the home

I am glad no one in the home was killed, sad that none of the intruders were either. I hope they catch these [filtered word]'s and they resist arrest!

USSOCOM what does slavery

USSOCOM what does slavery have to do with this? I guess what you are used to is someone killing a whole family in a trailer park. Crime see no color!! Blacks commit crimes, Whites commit crimes, Asians(VA Tech), so don't sit here and act like blacks are the only ones being stupid.

What is this world coming to

What is this world coming to when you aren't safe in your own home! Should you hide in the closet with a gun ready to shoot whomever comes in? Doesn't matter the color of your skin we are all of the HUMAN race and these people are not human! They are parasites who need to be eradicated from this earth so the rest of can live in peace!
