CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Cape Girardeau sheriff's deputies are investigating a home invasion and shooting in Cape Girardeau County.

The incident happened just after 10 p.m. on Thursday in the 1000 block of Village Lane in the Cape Rock Village area.

Deputies say a family of four was at their home when three men wearing bandanas and dark colored clothing kicked in the front door and entered the house.

The owner of the home surprised the men and they ran away while firing shots at the homeowner.

Some of the gun shots hit a vehicle in the driveway, but no one was hurt.

Cape Police later saw a vehicle they thought the suspects might be in and tried to pull the vehicle over.

The driver stopped and four men jumped out, fleeing into a wooded area near Amblewood and Briarcliff.

Police searched the area but couldn't find the men.

An investigation is ongoing.

Cape Girardeau police say they believe the home invasion was a "targeted and isolated incident, and not believed to be a random act."

However, police are asking that the public take security precautions to protect your family and to always be aware of your surroundings to avoid becoming a victim of crime.
