SEATTLE (AP) -- A man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was shot during a robbery at his home in North Seattle, and police are investigating four drive-by shootings in South Seattle in which more than 60 rounds were fired early Sunday.

The robbery occurred just before 2 a.m. The victim operates a marijuana grow operation with his roommate, and he was shot in the chest when he confronted the intruder. Police are still looking for the shooter.

Meanwhile, police say there were four drive-by shootings in South Seattle overnight. No one was hurt. More than 20 shots were fired at the first home at 1 a.m., and 30 were fired at two homes at 3 a.m. Investigators say gang members live at all three of those homes.

A fourth drive-by occurred at about 3:10, when a woman said she was looking out her bedroom window when someone fired into the house and she dropped to the floor. Eleven bullets went into her house.
