NORMAN, Okla. – Police are investigating a violent home invasion in Norman. 

Authorities said Friday night they found a man who had been shot multiple times in a home on the 3300 block of Woodsboro Dr.

Neighbors said they called 911 because the homeowner had asked for help saying someone was trying to break into his house. 

“The young man went back to his home,” neighbor Angie Matthews said. “Just about that time, police came and they said there was probably an incident that occurred and someone was shot as he was running back to his house and the other people tried to get into the residence.”

Authorities said the victim is expected to recover.
