Randolph County -- A Randolph County man is lucky to be alive after he was shot in the face during an early morning home invasion.
It happened at 4:37 a.m. Friday morning. Investigators say 31-year-old Eduard Lilliot was inside his Randolph County home on Highway 27 South when an intruder entered the house through a window.
While investigators say robbery appears the motive, they are hoping to gather leads on the suspect or suspects behind the crime.
"We spent 20 hours processing the scene at this house. We're doing everything that we can to develop a suspect and get them off the street," said Randolph County Sheriff Gary Yochum.
The victim was able to drive to his employer's home and call for help after being shot. He was transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital where he was listed in satisfactory condition.
The gunman is described as a black man last seen in the Randolph County area around 5 A.M. Friday.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the Randolph County Sheriff's Office or the GBI.
