Home invasion goes wrong

November 6, 2003

Valdosta - In a bizarre home invasion Wednesday night, the suspect accidentally shot himself and the victims went to jail.

Three men stormed a house on Tyndall Drive around 9:30. One of the men in the house fought them and during a struggle, one of the gunmen was shot in the stomach.

When police got there, they found cocaine and marijuana in the house, and arrested the three victims.

"We do believe it was drug related because of the large amount of narcotics we found," said Lt. Brian Childress.

The shooter, 19-year-old Victor Norwood, had to have surgery and is in fair condition. The victims, 19-year-old Byron Boynton, 20-year-old Norman Bostic, and 19-year-old Oswald Crockett are all in the Lowndes County Jail, charged with possession or marijuana and cocaine with intent to distribute.

Police are still looking for the other two gunmen who invaded the house.
