The home invasion took place before 2 a.m. near North Carolina State University's campus, where McCreery is a student. Three armed suspects entered the property and took money, wallets and electronics from multiple victims before leaving all of the victims unscathed, according to Raleigh Police Department, via CNN.

In a 911 call released by police and obtained by ABC11, one of the victims said, "they took everything we have." The person described the dramatic scene, saying "They were like "Get down. Get on the floor and give us everything you got.'" The caller also said they were told to count down from 100 before getting up. Neighbours reported loud yelling and the sound of people charging up stairs.

"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," Scotty wrote. "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," the star added.
