SHEFFIELD, AL (WAFF) -
Sheffield Police are searching for gunmen who shot and killed a man Friday night during a home invasion.
Investigators said 27-year-old Dorian Hamilton of Muscle Shoals was visiting a home on Sterling Boulevard when two men broke in. Hamilton tried to keep them from entering a back room where he and five others were when he was shot.
Police said the bullet went through his arm and hit him in the chest.
Hamilton was taken to Helen Keller Hospital where he died.
Investigators believe the home invasion started as an attempted drug robbery.
Police said they did seize several drugs from the home, including marijuana, bath salts, and cocaine.
"This was not just some random act. We believe the people that went to this residence went with the intent to rob them of their drugs," said Sheffield Police Chief Greg Ray." We hope that's not the case, but it does appear that it was. I don't think the public has anything to worry about as far as random home invasions that are going on. These were targeted individuals by some individuals that they probably know."
No arrests have been made.
If you have any information on what happened Friday night or who the masked men were, call the Sheffield Police Department immediately.
