A North Bellport home invasion ended with a 42-year-old man shot wound wounded, one suspect arrested and Suffolk County police searching for two suspects that got away early Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The victim briefly spoke with people he noticed in a vehicle parked in front of his home Sundial Lane, when two people got out of the car and at least one of them pointed a gun at the victim’s head and forced him into the house at 3 a.m., police said.
Once inside, a struggle ensued between at least one of the suspects, the victim and his 21-year-old son, police said. The 42-year-old man was shot once in the stomach, police said.
The victim was taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, where he was listed in serious but stable condition.
The suspects fled the scene, but officers apprehended one of them—Tory Fenner, of West Babylon—shortly later in Shirley, police said. The other two suspects fled the scene.
Fenner was charged with burglary and criminal possession of a weapon. He will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
Fifth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information on this incident to call them at 631-854-8552 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
