    Philadelphia Police are looking for two people who were involved in a home invasion and shooting of a 19-year-old man in North Philadelphia Friday night.

    Investigators say that the two men entered the house in the 400 block of West Raymond Street through the open front door shortly before midnight. The man's parents had apparently left the door open and were watching television when the men entered.

    One of the men went into the teen's bedroom, struck him on the head with a silver gun, and ordered him to go downstairs. There, the second man demanded the teen's money.

    Authorities say the two went through the 19-year-old's pockets, taking $50. Before fleeing, investigators say the first robber shot the teen twice in the left leg. The teen was taken to Einstein Medical Center, where he is in stable condition and expected to undergo surgery.

    Both offenders are described as black men. The suspect who shot the teen is described as 20 years old and standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hoodie with a wrapping around his face, and was armed with the silver gun.

    The other suspect is also described as being 20 years old. He stands 6 feet tall with dark skin and was also wearing a dark-colored hoodie.
