A 39-year-old Frankford father of two was shot in the lower back while tied down during a home invasion robbery early Wednesday morning, reports NBC 10 Philadelphia. The man's two children, ages 8 and 12 were present and witnessed their father being bound and shot. Another witness, a 51-year-old man who was also tied down, suffered a seizure. Both of the victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital.
In addition to the obvious criminal issues, there will be civil issues of battery and trespassing, and this home invasion robbery could bring rise to an intentional infliction of emotional distress lawsuit.
