BILLERICA (CBS) — Police are investigating after a man told them he was shot during an attempted armed robbery at his home.

Billerica Police were called to a Millpond Drive home around 11 p.m. Saturday night.

They found the man who had called 911 with a gunshot wound to his leg.

He said he had just come home from work when a masked gunman met him in his driveway demanding money.

They fought, and during the struggle, the man said the masked intruder shot him.

He said the gunman fled toward High Street, where police say they believe he got into a vehicle and drove off.

Billerica Police searched the area with K9 officers and found no one.

“I was actually really surprised,” said neighbor Taylor Fole when she heard what happened. “It’s a really, really quiet neighborhood, you wouldn’t expect that from this area.”

She added, “I was nervous, especially nervous to know it was 11 o’clock and sometimes I come home around that time or if I have to take the trash out at night.”

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Billerica Police.
