MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Two people are recovering from gunshot wounds after a home invasion in Monroe early Sunday morning on Harn Street.

Monroe Police said they got a call around four Sunday morning, after two suspects walked in the front door of the home and shot at a 23-year old, standing near the home's hallway. They said the suspects walked into a bedroom and confronted a 16-year old with a .22 rifle and shotgun. Police say the 23-year old shielded the teen as the two suspects began shooting at them, hitting the teen in the leg and the 23-year old in the arm before fleeing the home.

Monroe Police said nothing was reported stolen. Police said they did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, but its unclear if they were airlifted to the hospital.

Monroe Police are still investigating, but say they believe the victims knew the suspects previously and were targeted.
