Victim Injured During Violent Home Invasion

A Frankfort man was injured during a violent home invasion early Wednesday morning.

It happened at Prince Hall Apartments off Myrtle Avenue at around 1:15 am.

Police say the victim, 31-year-old David Pierce, reported that a masked man knocked on his door, aimed a shotgun at him and threatened to kill him.

Pierce says the man forced his way inside the apartment, but Pierce says at that point, he rushed the gunman and grabbed the shotgun.

Police say during the struggle the gun went off and the shot hit the ceiling.

Police say Pierce was eventually able to get out of the apartment. He suffered minor injuries to the face and hands.

So far, there have been no arrests. If you have any information, call Frankfort Police at (502) 875-8523.
