A suspect was arrested in connection with a home invasion that happened in Aberdeen late last month.
The suspects entered the victim’s home off of Fellowship Way and held the victim at gunpoint robbing him of money. The victim described the suspects as “two black males” who forced their way into his home at 11:30 pm on April 25th.
The suspects fired several shots as they were fleeing the house that night hitting the home and several parked vehicles. There were no injuries reported.
