Teen shot during Metro-East home invasion

(KMOV) -- Police were called to the scene of a home invasion in Belleville early Tuesday morning.

It happened on Kingsway, not far from the Sky View Drive-In.

Investigators with the St. Clair County sheriff's department say that six masked suspects forced themselves into a home.

The suspects then made a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old inside the home help them look for valuables.

The 17-year-old apparently fought back and was shot twice in the arm. The victim is being treated at a local hospital. No word yet on the victim's condition.

The attackers left the home in a dark colored van.

Investigators do not believe this attack was a random act.
