GARFIELD, Pa. —
Police said people inside of a Garfield home may have acted in self-defense when they shot an intruder Wednesday night.
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.
Andrews, 27, later died at an area hospital.
Both victims fled the home seeking help after the shooting and were rushed to a nearby hospital where they are listed in serious condition, officers said. Their names have not been released.
Neighbors who live on Browns Way declined to comment on the situation, fearing possible retaliation.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact police.
