HOUSTON CO., AL (WSFA) -

The Houston County Sheriff's Department is investigating after one person was shot during an early morning home invasion.

The home invasion happened around 12:50 a.m. Monday at a house on Alex Circle in Taylor.

The sheriff's department says an investigation showed evidence of a burglary that became a home invasion when two males broke into the home and came into contact with one of the residents.

Investigators say the suspects started to physically assault the resident and during that assault shot the person. The victim, unidentified, was treated as a local hospital.

Authorities say the search for the suspects remains ongoing. Anyone with information that could help in the case is asked to call the Houston County Sheriff's Dept. at 334-677-4807.
