(ROCKFORD) WIFR -- Two people are being treated for gunshot wounds after a man broke into their home.

Rockford police say the two people were sitting in the living room of their home located in the 1100 block of Crosby Street just before 11 pm when a man kicked in their front door and began shooting at them.

A 21 year old man was shot and hit in his thigh and a 19 year old woman was also shot and hit in her right leg. Both were taken to local hospitals and are expected to be okay.

The suspect then fled the scene. Police say he is possibly a black or hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties. The man was last seen wearing dark clothing and a bandana over his face.

This shooting is still being investigated.
