Two men sought in killing during Antioch home invasion

Tennessean South Precinct detectives are looking for two men who invaded an Antioch home Thursday night and shot and killed the man who lived there. Santos M. Leal, 51, was shot in his duplex in the 1500 block of Bell Road, police said in a news release Friday night. Leal was at home with his two roommates at 8:25 p.m. when two gunmen forced their way inside and demanded money, according to the news release.
