Scotty McCreery was the victim of a robbery earlier today.
The 20-year-old American Idol winner was reportedly robbed by gunmen during a home invasion that happened in the early hours of Monday morning, according to a local ABC affiliate. The invasion happened at an apartment near North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
McCreery addressed the events on his Facebook page, writing: "Yes, it was definitely a very scary night. Luckily, my friends and I are safe and the Raleigh PD is on the case. I will share more when the time is right, but as of now we do not want to do or say anything that could hinder the investigation. Thanks to everyone for the prayers and support. A huge thank you to the Raleigh PD for their quick response and hard work in solving this case."
