Police Investigate Livingston County Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - One person is in custody after a home invasion in Livingston County late Tuesday night.

Livingston County Undersheriff Mike Murphy tells 6 News that the assault appears to be a targeted incident and the general public is not in danger.

According to Murphy, several armed suspects broke into a home in the 1600 block of North Hughes Road in Osceola Township.

One of the intruders confronted the home’s owner and got into a physical confrontation during which a shot was fired from one of the intruder’s weapons, although no one was injured.

However, Murphy says there were seven other people in the residence at the time of the attack, one of whom was kicked in the mouth and lost some teeth.

Some of others managed to flee during the break-in and called authorities.

When deputies arrived, most of the intruders had already left the scene, except for one armed with a gun, who was arrested.

Murphy says the intruders are believed to have had multiple rifles and handguns, but wouldn’t discuss possible motives for the attack citing the ongoing investigation.
