ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A home invasion in southeast Albany ends with shots fired and a man in the hospital.

Albany Police say the intruder kicked in the door at 215 Morningside Drive just before midnight Sunday night.

The victim who lives there, 42-year-old Juan Gasper tried fighting the suspect, but the suspect shot him and ran out the door.

A man who lives down the street from Gasper says he was robbed last week, and thinks Hispanics in the community are being targeted.

Gasper was transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. He is in good condition.
