A man is recovering in hospital after getting shot during a violent home invasion in Coolangatta early this morning.
Two men wearing balaclavas apparently entered his house on Rutledge St around 2am when a fight broke out, and the 32-year-old occupant was shot in the thigh.
The masked thieves then grabbed a safe containing a sum of cash and took the keys to a black 2012 Audi Q3, before taking off in the luxury car.
The victim was taken south of the border to Tweed Heads Hospital with a non-life-threatening wound.
Police are still hunting for the offenders and the car, which has the Queensland registration NV05.
