This morning at approximately 4:30 AM Officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department were dispatched to the 3200 block of Euel in reference to a possible burglary. Upon arrival they spoke with the residents who stated that two unknown white males armed with handguns had entered the residence and began demanding money and narcotics. One of the residents, later identified as Mark Peysen (w/m 53), began struggling with the suspects at which time he was shot in the right hand. After taking an unknown amount of cash and property the suspects fled in an unknown direction. Peysen was treated for his non-life threatening injury.
WFPD Detectives along with the Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene and are currently investigating.
If and when more information becomes available it will be released through the Public Information Office.
