LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ — Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is investigating an apparent home invasion that led to a shooting early Thursday morning in the West Valley.

The incident occurred before 4 a.m. at a home near Camelback and El Mirage roads in Litchfield Park.

A woman was reportedly injured when three people entered the home and fired shots.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

ABC15 spoke with Kobe Lachapelle, who lives a few doors down from where the incident occurred.

“It’s pretty intense,” said Lachapelle when describing what he saw when he stepped outside his door.

“This is a very quiet neighborhood, and you don’t really think about that type of stuff happening where you live,” he said.

He says he was sleeping at the time it happened, but shortly after he woke up to get ready for class. That’s when he saw law enforcement cars filling his street.

“I didn’t really know what to expect. I mean the police tape said a lot because they don’t just put tape up for no reason,” said Lachapelle.

He says this is the first time something like this has happened in the quiet neighborhood he moved into, nearly one year ago.

“Hopefully nothing like that ever happens again, especially here,” he added.

MCSO says there is no suspect information available at this time.
