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.

Anyone who has seen the car is urged to contact Policelink 131 444.
