Man shot during home invasion in Kirkland
KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Police here are searching for three men who broke into a home in the Totem Lake area and shot a man late Sunday.

Sgt. Rob Saloum said the victim was at home in the 12000 block of 102nd Court NE with his girlfriend when two men forced their way inside and hit him in the head with a gun.

The altercation spilled outside where the man was shot in the arm and torso, Saloum said. The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and was listed in stable condition.

The intruders drove off in a car that was spotted a short time later by Kirkland police. Three men who were inside got out of the car and ran off, Saloum said.

Officers searched the area using a police dog, but the three men remain at large.

Saloum said it was unclear if the victim knew the men who shot him.

"We don't know any motive at this point," Saloum said. "It's too early."
