    A man was shot in his Southington home when three masked intruders forced their way in Monday, police said.

    Daniel Morin, 43, was shot in the arm after getting in a "scuffle" with one of three home invaders at his home on the Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike. He called police at 6:41 p.m. on Monday to report the incident in the 700 block of the street.

    He was home with a female when three individuals wearing all black, masks and gloves broke into the home. All three intruders were armed with handguns. 

    Morin confronted them and got into an altercation with them, prompting one of the home invaders to fire two shots, hitting his upper arm. 

    The intruders moved through the house a little longer and then ran away, Lt. Michael Baribault with the Southington police said. Officers responded and searched the area with the help of a K-9 unit. They didn't find the home invaders. 

    Morin's injuries are considered non-life threatening, police said.

    The suspects are currently at large and police say it is too early to tell if the suspects knew Morin while the crime is still being investigated. 

    It's unknown whether the home invaders stole anything from the home.
