The men came in with a shotgun and eventually wounded Robert Carter.

Cody Gallinaro described the scene to WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith.

“His daughter tried pushing him out of the door. They wrestled around and then she called her father, and he came down and they wrestled around, she went up to tell her grandmother and then she heard two shots and she went down and he was shot in the back, I guess, and his hand.”

Carter was rushed to Leahy Clinic in critical condition.

Investigators do not believe the attack was random.

State and local police searched the neighborhood and a nearby mobile home park Sunday evening, but found nothing.
