Home Invasion in North Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – It was a terrible start to the new week for a homeowner in North Huntsville: waking up to the sounds of burglars.

Huntsville Police are investigating a home invasion that happened just before three o’clock in the morning at a home on Lyngail Drive and Winchester Road.

Officers say two men broke into the home and apparantly didn’t realize anyone was there.

At some point, the burglars were startled and one of them fired a gunshot.

Then, both of them ran off empty-handed.

The homeowner is okay.

Police are still looking for the two men.
