A home invasion ended with the victim being shot in the leg and the suspects still on the loose.

The DeKalb County A(L) Sheriff’s Office says the shooting happened Wednesday night in the Kilpatrick community.

The victim told deputies that two Hispanic males, wearing with black and white bandanas on their faces and hoodies knocked on the door. 

When the victim answered the door, the two suspects tried pushing the door open, scaring the victim’s wife who ran to the bedroom trying to find a weapon.  

The suspects were able to shove the door open, came into the house and shot the victim.
