MAN HOSPITALIZED WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS FOLLOWING HOME INVASION AND ASSAULT IN HIGHLAND

The investigation continues into the home invasion and subsequent shooting in Highland early Sunday morning.  Police have not yet released the identification of the alleged intruder.  According to Highland Police Chief Terry Bell, a 33 year-old man allegedly forced his way into an apartment, in the 2600 block of Eagle Way Drive, about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.  The apartment is the home of two sisters, Debi Keeney and Donna Carlyle.  The man allegedly demanded money and attacked the women.  Keeney told police she pleaded with the man repeatedly to stop the attack and leave and when he did not, she shot him with a small 22 cal. revolver. 

Bell said wounds show the man was shot twice.  He was shot in the spine and was in intensive care yet Monday morning but his current condition is unknown.  Bell said this is an isolated incident and there is no evidence the man knew Keeney and Carlyle and the sisters did not know him.  The man’s identity has not yet been released and no charges have been filed.
