On Monday night, Paradise police responded to the 6400 block of Lucky John Road after getting calls about a gunman and shots fired.
Officials said police arrived at the home around 10:30 p.m. to find a man shot in the chest. The victim was identified as 31-year-old Adam Wrangham. Wrangham was taken to Enloe Hospital and died Tuesday morning from his injuries.
Wrangham's girlfriend was allegedly in the house when the suspects broke in, officials said. They added she reported there were three men.
Paradise Police Lieutenant Steve Rowe said that his team still isn't sure how many suspects they are looking for.
"The investigation is still in its early stages," said Rowe.
Rowe believes that the murder and robbery was not a random act. When law enforcement searched the home, they found a substantial amount of marijuana.
"We believe the victim was known by whoever did this," said Rowe.
It is not confirmed if the incident is drug related, but Rowe said he is familiar with Wrangham.
"We've had some contact with him, but nothing recent," said Rowe.
Neighbors were surprised. Stuart Carrier lives down the street and said the community is tight-knit.
"A lot of us look after each others property, so if there's someone suspicious we contact them or the police," said Carrier.
Carrier mentioned that even though the neighborhood is friendly, it does have a problem.
"Pot cultivation is a major problem here," said Carrier.
Carrier suggested a neighborhood watch would benefit him and his family.
Police are continuing to process the home for evidence. Those with information are asked to call Paradise Police at 872-6241.
