    Police are looking for a group of men who burst into a Pennsbury Township home on Monday evening and injured the homeowner.

    Fred Barakat was shot and is in stable condition at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

    According to investigators, three men, two wearing masks, entered the home along the 300 block of Hillendale Road just before 6:30 p.m.

    There was a stuggle and Barakat was shot. Police say this does not appear to be a random home invasion. They say it appears as though Barakat was targeted but they have not said why.
