Man thwarts home invasion, shoots intruders holding mother of two at gunpoint
WPVIBy Corey Davis
The break-in happened around 4 a.m. Monday at a home near Walker and Wellington Streets in the Tacony section of Philadelphia.
Police said two men wearing masks broke into the home by climbing up a deck and entering through a nearby window.
Police said the woman's one-year-old was also in the house.
Investigators said a man interrupted the robbery with gunfire.
Police also said the other man who was shot is Elvin Laureano-Ubeiro, 24. A witness rushed him to the hospital, police said.
As for the shooter who stopped the break-in, he's currently nowhere to be found.
Police said he left the scene before they arrived.
"I checked on them and made sure they were ok and the cops had came up with their guns out," Gaymon said.
Long-time resident Jay Johnson caught audio of some of the commotion on his surveillance cameras and said he's had enough.
"Ten, 20 years ago, it wasn't like this," Johnson said.
Investigators said the intruders were likely going after drugs and money, but police didn't find any drugs at the home.
