Deputies Searching for Home Invasion and Shooting Suspects
* Shelby County Sheriff Deputies continue to search for two men in connection with a home invasion and shooting.
* The suspects are believed to be in their teens or early 20's.
* Police say they shot a 39 year old home owner in front of his two children.
(Memphis, TN -- 1/22/2008) A North Shelby County man was shot twice in a home invasion Monday night.
It happened in the Laurel Hills subdivision north of Raleigh at about 10:30 pm.
Investigators say two men in hooded sweat shirts, ages 15 to 20, kicked the door in and went immediately upstairs. The suspects found two children, ages 12 and 13 watching TV.
When their father, 39 year old Ray Perry confronted the suspects, he was shot twice: once in the leg and once in the stomach.
Perry is now in stable condition as deputies continue the search for their two suspects.
Investigators say the motive could be robbery but have not ruled out this home invasion as a random crime.
If you can help police solve this crime, call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH
At least they did not publish the victim's address this time.

Shelby County Sheriff's Deputies are searching for two suspects who shot a man last night after breaking into his home near Raleigh.
It happened at about 10:30 Monday night in the 4100 block of Allendale cove, in the Laurel Hills subdivision.
According to investigators, the men broke down the front door and saw two children, a 12 year-old girl and a 13 year-old boy, watching television.
The children’s father, Ray Perry, 39, heard the commotion and confronted the two men, who shot him in the stomach and leg.
He remains at The Med in stable condition.
Perry’s two children were not harmed during the incident.
Detectives say the two men ran out of the house after the shooting and nothing was taken.
Another home invasion robbery occurred at about 2 a.m. today in the 5200 block of Castleman Cove, near Cottonwood and Mendenhall.
An unidentified number of armed and hooded men broke into the home and stole a number of items.
One man was slightly injured in the struggle, but was treated for his wounds at the scene and released.
Anyone with information about the either home invasion is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 528 CASH or the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office General Investigation Bureau at 545-5600.
I had heard the report of the other home invasion but could not find it when I posted. So this makes two home invasions in one day in Memphis. Stay armed Memphis!

It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.
People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

Just a normal day in Memphis. Sad to say it, but it's true.
This kind of thing happens here all to often. Barely a week goes by with out a home invasion in Shelby County.

Ya know Mike, you are absolutely right. Another chilling thing about living in Memphis is that hardly a single night goes by that I don't hear gun shots in the distance. Stay armed and stay safe guys and gals!
