ST. LOUIS (KSDK) -- St. Louis Police are investigating a violent home invasion in the city's Mark Twain neighborhood.

Officers were called to a home in the 5300 block of North Kingshighway just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

A woman who lives at the home, tells police she just got inside the house when there was knock at her door. She recognized the female that was knocking. When she opened the door, the female and three males, all armed with guns, forced their way inside the home.
