Man shot twice during burglary


BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Bladen County man is recovering after being shot twice as his home was robbed, investigators say.

The Bladen County Sheriff's Office got a call around 9 p.m. Friday that someone had been shot at a home in the 700 block of Mitchell Ford Rd. in Clarkton. Chief Deputy Rodney Hester says when deputies arrived, they found a man shot twice in the right leg. The victim told investigators he heard a knock at the door, and when he opened it, a man was standing there holding a handgun. The victim said he was shot as he struggled with the other man.

According to Hester, the victim was then tied up and the house ransacked. He says a second man entered the home and tied up a second victim, who was in the kitchen when the shots were fired.

The victims were able to get free and call 911. Deputies say prescription medication and approximately $20 were taken during the burglary.

EMS took the shooting victim to a hospital for treatment of his non-life threatening injuries, Hester said.
