MOUNT AIRY, OH (FOX19) -

A 28-year-old man was shot in a home invasion late Wednesday, Cincinnati police said.

The victim told investigators three men - including one wearing a mask - rushed in when he answered a knock on his apartment door about 10 p.m. Wednesday on East Knoll Court near North Bend Road, said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.

A fistfight ensued, ending with one of the suspects shooting the man in the left thigh.

The men ran off and remain at large.

Nothing appears to have been stolen in the offense, Brown said.

The victim was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and is expected to recover.
