This morning, no arrests have been made after a mother is shot defending her 15-year-old daughter during a home invasion.  It’s a scary incident that has neighbors on edge.  

Mobile Police are still looking for two young men accused of breaking into a home and shooting one of the homeowners.  It happened Sunday afternoon on Lakeview Drive.  Police say a 15-year-old girl heard someone knocking at their front door.  Then someone broke in through the rear.  Police say the girl’s mother came home and saw one of the suspects in the driveway and was shot.  The two then fled the scene.  The victim’s husband says this has been a traumatic experience for everyone.

“We don’t know honestly, what’s coming down the road, what are either of them going to be feeling like the next time they have to be in the house by themselves. your house is supposed to be your sanctuary, but there are people who think you know I can just come in and take what you’ve worked for and it’s going to be mine now and I’ll shoot you in the process. I don’t, I don’t get it,” said Mark Wyatt.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Mobile Police.
