>Home invasion probed on LaSalle Avenue

Buffalo police are investigating a home invasion that occurred at about 3 p.m. Saturday on LaSalle Avenue.

A man carrying a shotgun entered a home on the 500 block of LaSalle ordering two women to lie face down on the floor. Three children who were playing outside were ordered inside the home and were told to lien top of the two women.
