CHAMPAIGN -- Police are searching for two men after an early morning home invasion. It happened just before 3 am in the 1000-block of North Willis.
    Police say the suspects forced their way into the home and demanded money. A 33-year old man and 27-year old woman were in the home at the time.
    One suspect was armed, and hit the male victim with the gun. It went off and blew a hole through the door. It's unclear if the weapon was fired on purpose or on accident.
    The suspects took off with a wallet and some cash. They're described as two black males. Both wore dark clothing and covered their faces with ski-like masks.
    Anyone with information is asked to call police.
