SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Police are searching for two people who broke into a Surprise home over the weekend and shot one person.

It happened just after 3 a.m. Sunday.

According to police, two armed people forced their way into a home northwest of Dysart and Greenway roads and held the three people inside at gunpoint.

There was some sort of altercation in the course of the home-invasion style robbery and one of those three people was shot. That victim was air-lifted to a local hospital where he reportedly is in serious condition.

The two suspects got away. Police did not have a description of the suspects and no other information was immediately available.

The investigation is ongoing.

The Surprise Police Department is asking any member of the public who has additional information that may aid in the investigation to contact the Surprise Police Department at 623-222-4000.
