Police say the suspects made their way into the home and forced 91-year-old Waldiman Thompson and his 100-year-old wife, Ethline, into their bedroom where they tied them up and put sheets over their heads. "They're church people. I would see them walking around going to the laundromat".

PIX11's sources say the couple may have been targeted since they were landloards. Police say that her injuries are not serious.

Police said they are not sure what was taken from the home.

Delroy said he asked detectives to "grill him to the ultimate". "We're in NY so there's bad things that happen all over the city, but very specifically for this neighborhood, to have something like that happen here, I'm just really shocked", said neighbor Michael Rice.

"I think when he departed he left the door open", Delroy said. Police said they are treating this as a home invasion robbery homicide.

The couple owns the building and collects rent from tenants.

But Ethlin was able to escape, running out of the house and calling 911, according to Pix11.

"When I came out I saw them bringing him out on a stretcher and they were pumping his chest", neighbor Lawrence Reynolds said.

Delroy noted that family members, including himself, were in town the day before the home invasion for a family reunion at his sister's house in The Bronx.

"My father wanted to come to Florida, but my stepmother would not accept it", Delroy said.

"She was sitting there, crying 'My husband is inside!"

He also added that Ethlin had mentioned that she had lost the key to her lockbox and was planning to call a locksmith.
