Columbus family shaken following Friday night home invasion

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus family is still unnerved after a gunman bombards their home.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. on Friday in the 3200 block of 7th Avenue.

Police say a man made everyone in the home get on the floor and empty their pockets. A woman told police the man pulled out a pistol once inside the house.

The suspect also stopped by there earlier that day looking for a person who doesn't live there.

The suspect is described as a white man, about 5' tall, wearing a black T-shirt and shorts. He got away with about $150.

If you know anything about this crime, you are asked to call the Columbus Police Department at (706)-653-3400.
