No one was struck by the gunshots. Jachles said three penetrated the door of Apt. 123, but no one was in there at the time.

Jachles said the suspect made off with cash, but did not disclosed the amount.

Ladouceur was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Jachles said.
