A group of nearly 50 people reportedly stormed into a house in an outlying district of Ho Chi Minh City before damaging and opening fire on the residence, causing one person to be injured.

Police in Binh Chanh District confirmed on Tuesday they were investigating the case following a report of the victims.

According to preliminary information, Tran Ngoc Chau and Tran Trung Hieu, both 61, were having a conversation at the front of Chau’s house at around 7:30 pm on November 18 when a group of unidentified people ‘raided’ the place.

Some members of the gang shut down the power source of the house before the others started vandalizing the residence with their machetes, bricks, and guns.

The group then left following the attack.

Chau managed to turn on the power source and discovered that one of the bullets had hit Hieu’s left ankle.

As the victim was bleeding, Chau took him to the hospital for emergency treatment.

Officers later arrived at the house to examine the scene and collect statements.

During an interview with Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, N.T.Th., the house’s maid, said she and three young children were also inside the home at the time of the incident.

After the attackers left, Th. had to take the kids to a local hotel for their own safety.

Chau and his family run a small diner and coffee shop at their house.
