Second Squad detectives are investigating a South Huntington home invasion in which a dog was wounded by gunfire, Suffolk County police said Friday.

When two masked men entered a home on Magerus Street late Thursday a resident ran into a bedroom, police said.

One of the masked men fired a shot through the bedroom door, injuring the dog, police said.

The resident was not injured, and the dog was taken to a veterinary hospital where it is expected to survive, a police spokeswoman said.

Police did not immediately know if the two masked intruders made off with any proceeds.
