A home invasion in the middle of the night just across the Mason-Dixon line into Fawn Grove, Pa. that left the homeowner shot in the chest after grappling with the intruder has been linked to Harford County, if only because that's where the shooter dumped the stolen getaway car.

Around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, according to a Pennsylvania State Police press release, an intruder, described as a white man 5 feet, 4 inches tall, who was wearing a ski mask and white gloves, broke into a home on Park Drive. After shooting the homeowner in the chest during a confrontation, the intruder forced his way into the home office, took car keys from the homeowner's wife and left.

The car was later found in Harford County by the Harford County Sheriff's Office, but the exact location has not been released.

Monica Worrell, spokesperson for the Harford County Sheriff's Office, said Thursday afternoon the sheriff's office was not "actively searching" for the man involved in the Fawn Grove incident.
