A scary scene in South Hills Wednesday night after a man is shot and stabbed during a home invasion.
It happened around 7:00 p.m. at a home on Wild Acre Road just off of Louden Heights Road.
Police say the victim is Cabell Franklin, 22.
Police responded to a home invasion call with shots fired and found Franklin with a gunshot wound to his leg, and he had also been stabbed.
We're told the suspects are three to four young black men and they are considered armed a dangerous.
Metro 911 dispatchers say two of the suspects are black men in their early 20's. One was wearing a red bandana and the other was wearing a dark blue sweatshirt and jeans. Both men were wearing hoods. A third suspect is said to be in an orange fleece shirt.
Police have set up a perimeter around the home, and have K-9's on the ground searching for the suspects.
Police say they are getting conflicting reports on whether the suspects fled on foot on in a car, but they are searching the entire South Hills area.
Police believe this is an isolated incident, but won't comment on specifics at this time.
Franklin's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
