The Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department is searching for four suspects involved in a home invasion Thursday in the 1000 block of Village Lane.  Cape Girardeau County Sheriff John Jordan reports that just after 10 p.m. the sheriff's office received a report of a home invasion in the Cape Rock Village area.  A family of four was in their home when three armed suspects wearing bandannas and dark-colored clothing kicked in the front door and came in.  When surprised by the residents, the suspects fled and fired multiple times at the homeowner, striking the house and vehicle in the driveway--no one was injured.  Officers spotted a suspect vehicle leaving, stopped it in the area of Amblewood and Briarcliff drives just off Lexington Avenue, and four suspects exited the vehicle and fled into the woods.  The investigation is ongoing and if you have information, contact the Cape Girardeau Sheriff's office at 243-3551.
