Authorities were warning homeowners to be on the lookout for two men posing as Columbus police officers.

The investigation started after the two suspects broke into a west Columbus home on Sullivant Avenue Thursday night.

24-year-old Teddy Cole told police that two men knocked on his door and claimed to be officers.

When he answered, he said two masked men attacked him.

He said one of the suspects was wearing a white shirt with a police badge emblem on the front.

Cole told investigators he was able to grab his handgun and fire one shot at the suspects.

The two men left the home, and it wasn't clear if either one of them had been shot.

If you have information about this home invasion, call Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-645-TIPS.
