    Updated:

    11:08 P.M. UPDATE: Lt. Sean Frank of the Shaler Police Department said the homeowner reacted quickly.

    "He heard them come in through his back door, which was unlocked," Frank said. "He grabbed his bow and arrow, which he’s proficient with, and he says he fired three shots down the hallway. Doesn’t think he struck them at that point.”

    However, the man fired one more arrow as the pair fled and believes he hit one of them in the arm.


    10:52 P.M. UPDATE: The order to shelter in place has been lifted.


    9:13 P.M. UPDATE: Police are requesting that all residents in the area of Crest Lane shelter in place and contact 911 if they have any information.

    The two men police are looking for are in their 30s, with one possibly wearing a hooded sweatshirt and one possibly wearing a red bandana. 

    Officers were using dogs as part of the search.
