SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — A 67-year-old American man has been shot to death during a home invasion in the Dominican Republic.

Police say Raffaelle Foria was killed in the popular tourist town of Sosua after four men broke into a house he shared with 70-year-old Stanley Leonard, who also was shot but is expected to recover.

Authorities did not have a state or hometown for the men.

Police spokesman Jesus Cordero said Tuesday that a Dominican security guard also was shot when he tried to confront the suspects.

No one has been arrested, and police say the suspects did not steal anything from the home.
