TINLEY PARK, Ill. (WLS) -- Police are searching for three men armed with handguns who broke into a home in southwest suburban Tinley Park late Saturday night.

The three men broke into a single-family home in the 8000-block of Pottawatomi Trail through an open garage door just before midnight, police said.

Three people sustained minor injuries. They were checked by paramedics on the scene.

The suspects were described as a white man and two black men, thought to be between the ages of 18 and 25, police said.
