A north Columbia family awoke to the sound of a gunshot early Sunday after police said an intruder broke into their home, fired at least one shot and left.

Columbia police said two women and two children were asleep at their home in the 3000 block of Haden Drive when the shooting occurred at about 2:30 a.m. One of the four called 911 and gathered the other three into a bedroom until officers arrived.

They did not see the suspect and no one was injured in the shooting, police said.
