Colquitt County - Two gunmen bound a family with duct tape. The armed and dangerous men are still on the loose. The home invasion happened around eight Friday morning.

Shots were fired inside the Colquitt County home. No one was shot, but one family member was injured during his attempt to fight back.

A quiet neighborhood, interrupted with police scanners. A Colquitt County mobile home on Morris Road was invaded by two armed and dangerous men. A neighbor, Mary Jane Burgess, says, "I'm kind of uneasy right now, because we don't know who they are."

The victims, Patrice and Harold Price and their adult son Michael Price were at home when two men forced their way in and demanded to see a safe.

The husband fought with the intruders and was struck on the head and the hand with the gun. The gunmen then used duct tape to bind the victims' hands. GBI agents found a bullet from a large caliber handgun under the roof's shingles.

It all started with a knock at the door, now these neighbors will think twice about answering their doors. Burgess adds, "We watch after everybody, it's something that just didn't go right this morning."

The men took a purse and a wallet. Mr. Price was sent to the hospital.

Investigators are looking for two black men. One man is described as 200-220 pounds wearing a blue windbreaker. The other man is 5-8, 160 pounds, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.

If you have any information call Colquitt County Sheriff's Office.
