Tacoma police were searching for three men who stole a car after a home-invasion robbery this afternoon in South Tacoma.

No arrests have been reported. None of the occupants of the home were injured, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The robbery occurred just before 1 p.m. Three men entered a home in the 4200 block of South 64th Street through an unlocked back door, Fulghum said. At least two of the robbers wielded guns.

They rounded up the six people inside the home.  There were reports that one of the occupants was handcuffed.  The robbers demanded money, Fulghum said.

The robbers took the keys of one occupants and took off in the black BMW.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots as the robbers fled. Officers found no shell casings or bullet holes when they investigated, Fulghum said.

The investigation was ongoing. No detailed descriptions of the robbers have been released.

Based on preliminary information, officers believe the victims were targeted.

“We don’t believe it was random,” Fulghum said.
