Police: Home invaded in Paterson

Police in Paterson say a home invasion took place after midnight on Sunday.

According to authorities, a woman who lives in the home answered the door expecting to see her mother, but was instead greeted by an armed gunman who demanded money.

The woman's boyfriend was able to wrestle the gun from the suspect and shot him several times, authorities say.

According to police, the couple didn't know the intruder and have no idea why they were targeted.
