Two people were being sought Thursday in connection with a home-invasion robbery in Eagle Rock that left a man hospitalized with a gunshot wound and a woman badly beaten, according to police.

It happened around 8 a.m. at a home in the 4000 block of Ellenwood Drive, according to Officer Tony Im with the Los Angeles Police Department.

A woman who had just arrived at the home was unlocking the front door when two men forced their way inside, LAPD Detective Jeana Franco said.

The intruders allegedly shot a man inside the home and pistol-whipped the woman, according to Franco.

Both were expected to recover.

Investigators believed the intruders used a handgun, but the weapon had not been recovered.

No description of the intruders was released.
