• Man injured in early-morning home invasion


    ATLANTA - A man was shot or stabbed during a home invasion early Monday morning in Southeast Atlanta.

    Police said a 31-year-old man was in his home on Linda Lane when several people kicked in his front door around 4 a.m.

    After an altercation, the man was shot or stabbed several times in the torso, police said. The man ran into his bathroom, jumped out the window and ran to a neighbor’s house for help, police said.

    Atlanta Police Department Maj. Barbara Cavender said the attack may be drug-related.
