Nassau County police are investigating an armed home invasion in which a pair of masked gunmen shot and wounded a 33-year-old man in his Westbury bedroom over the weekend.

The two assailants, armed with handguns, broke into the victim’s Albany Avenue home through a kitchen window, walked into the bedroom and fired several gunshots at the man, hitting him in the abdomen at 4:05 a.m. Saturday, police said.

The attackers then fled through the side door. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition. Two female victims who were also home at the time were not hurt.

Third Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.  All callers will remain anonymous.
