A Grays Ferry man was shot twice by an armed intruder inside his row home Monday night.
The home invasion occurred about 8:20 p.m. on the 3100 block of Tasker Street, police said.
The 58-year-old victim, identified in reports as a Vietnam veteran, confronted the intruder after he went downstairs upon hearing loud banging on the front door to his home. He was shot during a struggle with the armed suspect, who reportedly knocked the door from its hinges to gain entry to the row home.
