A teenager and two other people were shot in a violent home invasion in the Bronx early Thursday.

Now, police are looking for the gunmen.

Police say three people burst into the Rhinelander Avenue home in the Van Nest section and surprised the family. The father of that family confronted the suspects and a brief struggle ensued and ended with shots fired.

The 33-year-old man was shot in the abdomen, a 33-year-old woman was shot in the leg and a 14-year-old boy, who also struggled with the suspects, was grazed in the knee.

The suspects made a run for it, and no arrests have yet been made.

Police say they found drugs inside the home, but it is unclear if that is what the suspects were there for. The family also owns a deli.

The victims were taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where they are listed in stable condition.
