The Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident late Wednesday where a county man was shot twice by an unidentified assailant or assailants.  Sheriff’s Major Liz Scott said the home-invasion shooting took place about 11:30 p.m. in the 300 block of Southgate Avenue. The 39-year-old victim and his parents say they heard loud pounding on the door before someone forced their way inside the home.

Multiple shots were fired. Deputies provided aid to the victim, who was suffering from non-life-threatening wounds to the lower body. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.

Major Scott said the victim said he didn’t know who attacked him or why. He was unable to provide any description of an intruder or tell police if there was more than one attacker.
