SOUTH BEND A South Bend man was robbed and shot in the foot at his Meade Street home early this morning.

Police say 29 year old Jerome Scott was walking to his front door shortly after 4:00 a.m. when he was confronted by two males wearing hoodies and bandanas over their faces.

The men followed Scott inside the home and took cash. Police say Scott tried to detain one of the men until police arrived, but was shot in the foot. Scott has since been treated and released for the injury.

While Scott’s girlfriend and a female juvenile were in the home at the time, police do not believe that the incident was random.

Police allegedly found evidence of a marijuana growing operation in the home.
