RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Three people have been arrested by U.S. Marshals after a Rankin County home invasion.

On January 26 around 2:00 a.m., the Rankin County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from Flowood Merit Health Hospital that a 61-year-old man had arrived at the emergency room with multiple gunshot wounds to the legs.

Deputies were dispatched to the emergency room as well as the victim's home.

The victim said that he was at his home in bed when he heard a noise at the front door. He went to the door and was met by a man wearing a ski mask. The man entered the home and demanded money from the victim.

The victim said he heard the voices of two other men speaking.

The victim was then struck in the head with a pistol by the suspect. The victim was forced to open a gun safe where he keeps his weapons.

During the robbery, the victim was shot multiple times in the lower extremities.

Approximately 30 weapons were taken.
