NJ man shot in early morning home invasion

WOODBINE, N.J. - September 27, 2012

It happened on the 700 block of Jackson Avenue just after 7:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

The victim told police the masked gunmen burst through the back door and shot him in the leg.

His one year old child was with him at the time but wasn't hurt.

"I just can't believe that people are this selfish and cruel that they would even do this with a little baby in the house, and whoever it was, I am sure they knew the baby was there," said the victim's girlfriend Destinee Caffarella.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment and then released.

It is still not clear why he was targeted.
