HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville police said a man was killed in a home invasion late Tuesday night on Levert Street.

The Madison County Coroner Tyler Berryhill identified the person killed inside the home on Levert Street as 20-year-old Patrick Tordt.

A sergeant from Huntsville Police tell us someone flagged down an officer who was patrolling on Oakwood Avenue around midnight.

The officer then arrived at the home in the 2000 block of Levert Street and found that one person was shot and killed in the altercation. Police say a second person had multiple cuts and stab wounds and was taken to Huntsville Hospital in serious condition.

Police said both Tordt and the other person who was cut were victims in a home invasion.

Overnight Huntsville police officers were using a police dog in the parking lots of nearby stores on Oakwood Avenue. A WHNT News 19 photojournalist saw someone being placed into a police cruiser around 1:30 a.m. but that person’s possible connection to the case has not been released.

Police did not release any information about arrests or suspects in the case.
