Two armed men burst into a Coatesville, Pennsylvania, home and
demanded money from the two occupants in the living room. One of the
armed invaders went up to the master bedroom and threatened to shoot
or beat the couple in bed if they didn't hand over some money. The
man in bed, identified as Omar Reid, grabbed a pistol from the

invader fled the scene. Reid was not injured during the gunfire. The
wounded invader was taken to the hospital.
