“American Idol” star winner Scotty McCreery was held at gunpoint during a home invasion early Monday morning.

The country singer and North Carolina State University student was visiting friends at an off-campus apartment around 2 a.m. when the incident occurred.

According to law enforcement, three armed individuals came into the home and took wallets, cash, and electronics from McCreery and his four friends.

Fortunately, no one was injured during the break-in. McCreery says, “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,” he added.
