Lantana, Fla. (WFLX)-- City police and the Palm Beach County Violent Crimes Task Force are on a manhunt for a pair of armed home invaders who shot a man Wednesday night.

It happened around 9:30 pm on the 600 block of West Mango in Lantana.

A police spokesman says a man pulled up to his apartment  and noticed the front door ajar.

There were two masked men who had tied up his two roommates, one of whom had been shot on the side.

The home invaders got spooked and took off.  The witness also ran away and was unable to get a good look at the suspects.

The shooting victim was airlifted to the trauma center at Delray Medical Center  and is expected to survive.

The two suspects fled eastbound in a dark colored vehicle and were on the loose as of 11pm.
