An Azerbaijani man was shot and killed during a home invasion in Wyomissing, US, on Monday night while his children were inside the house, ONA reports citing CBS Philly.
The shooting happened at a home on Birchwood Road around 10 p.m.
According to police, 37-year-old Nail Salamov was in his bedroom when two men came inside, sprayed him with mace, and shot him in the armpit. His 8- and 10-year-old children were inside the home at the time of the shooting. They were not injured.
While he was being transported to Reading Hospital, Salamov told first responders that two men broke into his home and shot him.
He later died at the hospital.
Authorities don’t have much evidence, nor do they have a good description of the gunmen.
The children are being taken care of by their grandfather, who also lives at the home. He was at work at the time of the shooting.
Police continue to investigate the deadly home invasion.
