Police are searching for a suspect in a home invasion that claimed the life of a South Jersey man.

Police say 44-year-old Enrique Santiago was shot when he confronted a masked gunman who forced his way into Santiago's Bridgeton home on Monday.

“I just heard a boom, boom, boom and people hollering,” resident Dolores Armistead told The Press of Atlantic City. 

Police Capt. Michael Gaimari tells The Press of Atlantic City several of Santiago's relatives were home at the time, but they were not injured.

In a statement from The Press of Atlantic City, Gaimari urges residents to provide any information that could help police track down the gunman.

“Our department is only as strong as the residents it protects and serves,” Gaimari told the paper. “These victims are your neighbors and the suspects may be as well, so any assistance, even the smallest detail, may be of the utmost importance.”

Police say the suspect might also be connected to another home invasion that occurred just before Santiago's shooting and the armed robbery of a woman on Sunday night. No one was injured in those incidents.
