A Middle Tennessee State University student was attacked at his apartment after he answered a knock on his door.

The victim, Douglas Lee, said he heard someone knock on his door at Chelsea Place Apartments Wednesday night.

He thought it was a friend, but when he opened the door, two men pushed him back inside and held him at gunpoint.

When he tried to get up off the floor, one man hit him with his golf putter and knocked him out.

"I really thought I was going to (be) shot. It was really scary," said Lee.

His girlfriend, Taylor Brown, came home a few minutes later and found him on the ground.

"I thought he was dead. I didn't think he was going to wake up, especially when I was shaking him and he wasn't moving at all. It was terrifying," said Brown.

Lee's attackers escaped with some cash. Police said they've responded several times to the same complex for other incidents.

Investigators are still looking for the two men involved in the attack.
