MESA -- One man is dead and his two children are injured after being shot at their Mesa home. Police say the two gunmen are still at large.

It happened just after noon Monday at the Kay Bee Villa mobile home park in the 100 block of McKellips Road.

Police are looking for two men who they say shot the family and then fled the scene.

The father was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. His 15-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son suffered gunshot wounds that are believed to be non-life threatening. Their mother was also home at the time of the shooting but was not injured.

Police say the incident appears to have been a home invasion, but detectives aren't yet certain. It doesn't appear the victims know the assailants.
