Three men were charged Thursday with the home invasion and shooting of a 65-year-old man who was a retired police officer in Gary, Indiana.

Kevon Dixon, Fo’Tre White and Cameron Briscoe — ages 19, 20 and 19 — were charged with aggravated battery, battery with a deadly weapon, battery resulting in serious bodily injury and residential entry, according to a statement from Gary police spokeswoman Dawn Westerfield.

On Tuesday, the three men forced their way into a home in the 4100 block of Jackson Street, where they encountered the man and shot him once, Westerfield said.

Briscoe and White, of Gary, were taken into custody. Dixon surrendered himself Thursday evening to the Gary Police Department.
