Elkhart Police are searching for three suspects in a shooting and home invasion.

Police were dispatched to a home in the 600 block of Hiawatha Drive just after 1:30 Sunday morning in regards to a shooting with injuries.

During the investigation, officers were told a female victim returned home and was approached by three masked suspects armed with handguns. They tried to force their way into the home.
