Goose Creek, SC - Police are investigating a home invasion in the Greenview community early Tuesday in which two people were shot.

About 3:50 a.m., at least two people forced their way into a home at 118 Cuthbert Drive and shot the resident, Kenneth Simmons, 30, police Capt. John Grainger said. Simmons was treated at the scene for his injuries and released, Grainger said.

Another man, thought to have been perhaps one of Simmons' assailants, also was shot. He was found lying in the roadway a short distance from Simmons' house, Grainger said. Police had released a name, but Grainger later issued a statement saying his identity was uncertain.

The unidentified man was taken to Trident Regional Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery, Grainger said. He was in stable condition in the intensive care unit.

Police were dispatched to the area after several neighbors called 911 to report shots being fired. Investigators determined that the home invasion was not a random act and the suspects specifically targeted Simmons, Grainger said.
