Belleville police are looking for at least two suspects in connection with a home invasion that happened Thursday morning.

Around 3:30 a.m., a man inside the home in the 300th block of North 43rd Street heard someone kicking in the front door, a Facebook post from the police department said. When he ran to the room where two young children were sleeping, he noticed three people in his living room.

Another man in the home, who was sleeping in the living room, heard banging on the front door before he saw two people enter. One of the men allegedly fired several rounds in the residence using a “long gun type weapon,” police said.

The suspects then fled the home. Police said no one was injured during the incident and that nothing was taken from the residence.

Police said the incident didn’t seem to be a random act and that detectives are exploring several leads.

Anyone with information can call the police department at 618-234-1212 or Crimestoppers at 866-371-8477.
