HOUSTON – Police are searching for two gunmen who they say shot a man during a home invasion.

Officers got a call around 12:15 a.m. Friday from a home at Mount Pleasant and Tierwester.

According to investigators, two men in masks forced their way inside the home and demanded money and drugs.

They forced the people inside to lie on the floor while they ransacked the home.

The homeowner was shot in the leg as the men were leaving, police said.

Police are looking into whether the men got away with anything.
