A good Samaritan is recovering in hospital after trying to intervene during a home invasion in Surrey early this morning.

According to police, approximately five masked men forced entry into a home near 146th Street and 76B Avenue at approximately 1 a.m.  The suspects tied up the home’s occupant and started demanding cash.

As the group of men were leaving the Surrey home, a neighbour confronted them and according to RCMP, was shot. The neighbour was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital, treated for non-life threatening injuries and he is currently recovering in hospital.

Police believe the home invasion was targeted and currently no suspects have been arrested.
