Authorities said a man at the home had sustained a gunshot wound to an arm. The injury did not appear to be life-threatening. Police said the man, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital for treatment. His condition was not known.
Area police agencies were advised that the suspected shooter was a man who had been wearing a mask and a camouflage jacket. It was not known whether the suspect left the scene in a vehicle.
