A man is in critical condition after a violent home invasion.
This happened Wednesday morning at a home on the 1000 block of 40th Avenue North.
The 27-year-old man told police two men started banging on the back door of his home while he was asleep and eventually kicked the door in.
The man says he fled, and the shooters followed him outside and shot him in the torso while he was in his car.
He drove himself to St. Thomas Midtown around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The man has since been transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Police say the man is expected to survive.
No suspects have been identified at this time.
