An argument that started at Sunday's Wing Ding leads to a home invasion early Monday morning. It happened at about 2:30 a.m. in the 7100 block of West State Street at the Rustic Motel.

The Winnebago County Sheriff's Department says two men kicked in the door of a motel room, because of an argument at the Wing Ding with another Winnebago County family. That family of a husband, wife and their four kids was staying in that motel room.

Officials say after the suspects kicked in the door, one flashed a handgun and threatened to kill the husband. The wife told police her husband ran to the other room and jumped out a window. Officials say the wife and kids were then threatened, but in the end, nobody was injured. Investigators say they have identified two suspects.
