DETROIT (WWJ) -- Police are seeking tips in finding a pair of suspects wanted for a home invasion and non-fatal shooting on Detroit's west side Saturday morning.

Police say a 59-year-old man was inside a house on 28th Street around 8:30 a.m. when two armed men dressed in black knocked on the door. The man reportedly tried to lock the door, but the suspects were able to force their way inside and fired multiple shots, striking the man.

The victim was taken to a hospital and is said to be in temporary serious condition.

Police say the suspects fled the scene after the shooting, but have no description available. A motive for the invasion and shooting is still unclear.

Authorities are asking anyone who has information about the incident to call Detroit Police.
