Man killed in Bohemia home invasion

Police are searching for two armed men they say killed a man during a home invasion in Bohemia early Monday.

Authorities say two masked gunmen forced their way inside 1165 Sycamore Ave. around 12:30 a.m. and demanded money from 53-year-old homeowner Steven Privitera before shooting him in the abdomen.

Police say two other residents, who were standing outside the home, were taken at gunpoint into the house.

Privitera was taken to Southside Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. No arrests have been made.
