Police are investigating a terrifying home invasion where four males entered a home on Marklin Street in Cranbourne by shooting their way through the front door.
The four unknown men approached the front of the property about 11.30pm on Saturday 18 March where they assaulted the man who opened the front door and aimed a large firearm at him.
The man who answered the door quickly shut it when he saw the weapon and ran to the back of the house before he heard a gunshot.
The shot from the firearm went straight through the front door and damaged the lounge room wall opposite.
The six occupants of the house were uninjured during the ordeal.
Two of the home invaders have been described as Caucasian and the other two as African in appearance.
The first Caucasian man was described as about two metres tall and wearing dark clothing.
The second Caucasian male was described as under 25 years of age and about 167cm tall with a solid build, short brown hair and lighter coloured patchy facial hair.
The two possibly African accomplices were described as being between 17 and 20 years of age, both about 160cm tall with slim builds and wearing black hooded tops.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
