Two, or perhaps more, men broke into a Durham County home early Thursday morning and fired gunshots before running from the scene, the sheriff's office reported.
A homeowner saw at least two men force their way into the house in the 4700 block of Redwood Road about 2:30 a.m., sheriff’s spokeswoman Tamara Gibbs said.
The invaders fired shots that broke glass that cut the owner, investigators said. They then ran off.
The owner was treated at a hospital and released, Gibbs said. Children who were in the house were unhurt.
