Police: Maryland man killed during apparent home invasion

HALETHORPE, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man was shot and killed in his home during an apparent home invasion.

News outlets report 28-year-old Drevon Jamal Williams died early Monday morning in his Halethorpe home.

A statement from Baltimore County police says Williams was found by authorities suffering from at least on gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The statement says at least one suspect entered the home and shot Williams before running away. Police believe Williams was the target since several others were inside the home at the time of the shooting and no one else was injured.

The investigation is ongoing. Police do not have a description of the suspect as of yet.
