Howard County police are searching for the second man in connection to an attempted home invasion and robbery early Friday morning in Columbia.

Around 12:20 a.m., police were called to the 7600 block of Woodpark Lane, where two armed men with their faces covered kicked in the door of an apartment. A male resident, also armed, then fired at the men, who ran away. The male and female residents were not injured, police said.

Police later found one of the men a short distance from the apartment with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. He was then taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

Police are continuing to search for the second man. Police found drugs, firearms and cash inside the apartment. The investigation is ongoing.

Police said charges are still being determined for the involved parties.
