Once downstairs he was confronted by a masked man pointing a handgun at his face and demanding money. While the husband was getting money, a second masked suspect appeared and went to the upstairs master bedroom and ordered the wife at gunpoint to the floor. The second suspect then stole the wife’s wedding ring. After the first gunman was given cash by the husband, he then shot the husband in the head. The bullet grazed the top of the husbands scalp.

Both suspects then fled the scene.

The male victim was transported to a local hospital by ambulance personnel for treatment.
