Wednesday, January 12, 2011 - 11:10am

It was a frightening night for a couple and Hidalgo sheriff deputies continue to search for a group of men who forced their way into a home off of Farmosa Avenue in La Homa.

CSI officers were out investigating the crime scene on Tuesday morning after four or five armed men pushed their way into the home on Monday night. Deputies say the men entered the home yelling Police in Spanish. The homeowner grabbed his AK-47 and shot one of the intruders in the chest and the group then left the home. A witness followed the group to a home located on Moorefield and informed deputies of the location. Deputies report that the injured intruder was left off at McAllen Medical Center by the group of men and deputies will continue to investigate the crime.
