A Bergen County family was victimized in an armed home invasion Thursday morning, police say. 
Police say around 9 a.m., intruders knocked on the door of a home on 28th Street near Berkshire Road. Once a resident answered, they entered the home.    
According to a homeowner that lives across the street, those intruders were dressed like law enforcement.  
Three renters were inside the home at the time and at least one was hurt during the incident. The extent of their injuries is currently unknown.
Police have canvassed the neighborhood asking for surveillance footage from neighbors in the hope of seeing something that could help with the investigation.
The neighborhood was shocked by the incident.
"I see cop cars all the time always policing to make sure people are safe here, so that's why I'm surprised something like this has happened here, " says Danny Shah of Fair Lawn.
