Terrified home invasion victim speaks

Lindsay Sherbert is scared to death. The 23-year-old woman was released from the hospital after being shot over the weekend during a home invasion.

She says she and her friends were baking cookies at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday when three men began banging on the door.

"We heard a bunch of commotion at the door," Sherbert recalled. "They were saying the 'police, open up.' Before anyone could get to the door or have any time to react, they had kicked the door open."

Edward McNair also lives in the home and is traumatized. He didn't want to talk on camera, but he told ABC11 Eyewitness News the suspects came through the door shooting. The men shot one of McNair's best friends and killed his dog.

Police say the suspects were dressed in dark clothing with bandanas covering their faces. Sherbert says she had just taken a shower when the shooting began.

"I was halfway between the sink and the bathroom door," Sherbert said. "And initially when I heard the commotion, I kind of shut the door halfway to get down on the ground. I realized I was hit once. I was down on the ground."

The bullet hit her in the shoulder and exited her body. Sherbert says her "humerus is totally fractured, shattered." She says she can't feel anything from her elbow up.

Sherbert says she's going to be okay. McNair and another female, who was in the house during the invasion, were unharmed. The suspects got away with a wallet and some shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident should call the Fayetteville Police Department.
