DENVER — Police in Denver are looking for four suspects in a home invasion shooting the wounded two people during a gunfight inside a home Saturday night.

It happened around 8 p.m. in the 2900 Block of South Maddison.

Police said three suspects entered the home, one armed with semi-automatic rifle, and ordered people inside to get on the ground. But one of the victims fired back, leading to a gunfight between the suspects and the victim, police said.

Two people inside the home were struck -- one grazed in the back of the head and the other victim sustaining a gunshot wound to the arm. Both victims were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said the three suspects fled the home, meeting up with a fourth suspect outside. Authorities are still looking for them, but they haven't released a description, only stating they were wearing all black.

Police have not discussed any possible motive at this time.
