Police sought two men who broke into a Venice home early Tuesday, stole about $1,500 in cash and fired a pellet gun at a resident, slightly injuring him.

“I still can’t believe it happened,” victim Mark Woodcock told a TV station. “I’m glad it was a pellet gun and not a normal gun. Especially where it hit me.”

The home invasion occurred about 3 a.m. in the 2400 block of Grand Canal Court, said Los Angeles police Detective Ross Nemeroff.

Two residents were home when they heard the sound of a window being broken, Nemeroff said.

One suspect aimed a pellet gun at a resident and fired, and the projectile hit him in the chest, Nemeroff said. Police recovered a pellet gun at the scene, the detective said.

No suspect descriptions were immediately released.
