HOLLIS, Queens (WABC) -- Two men are facing charges for a violent attempted home invasion in Queens

Police say 22-year-old Avery Mitchell and 23-year-old Donte Frasier were seen on surveillance video trying to shove their way into a home in Hollis.

They told a 12-year-old they were delivering a package.

When the homeowner pushed the men out of the house, police say Frasier shot him with a BB or pellet gun. He was treated for a minor injury.

Police have not said whether the men are linked to a similar home invasion one day earlier.
