WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Police in Wilmington have arrested four suspects in connection to a home invasion that took place in the 1900 block of Colwell Avenue early Wednesday morning, and a warrant has been issued for another suspect who was shot by a resident during the invasion.

So far, 18-year-old Angel Domonique Myers of Castle Hayne, 23-year-old Jay Jawan Cromartie of Wilmington, 19-year-old Jamaar Tyree Walker of Wilmington and 20-year-old Michael Alexander Betrand of Castle Hayne face charges including first degree burglary, attempted armed robbery, second degree kidnapping, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and one charge of firearm by felon.

In a call to 911, the caller said the following: "My son was in the back, and somebody came up there with a shotgun and they came...they busted the door. I don't know what they was trying to do, but somebody...the gunshot done went off in my house. There's bullets in my house.  The shotgun is left in my house and a baseball cap."
