Superior police are searching for a man possibly suffering from a gunshot wound received while allegedly breaking into a home Thursday afternoon. 

Officers responded to a disturbance call just before 2:00 p.m. in what authorities say is a "residential neighborhood." 

When officers arrived, the resident of the home said that a dispute and a possible burglary or home invasion had taken place. The suspect, identified as 24-year-old Sean Richard Sanigar, may have been hit by a bullet fired by the resident during the altercation. The unnamed resident believes he struck Sanigar, and police say several anonymous tips indicate that Sanigar was injured.

Sanigar is described as wearing a white tank top and having either a cast or bandage wrap on one of his arms. 

Police are searching for Sanigar to determine if he needs medical care and to hear his version of the events. 

Police ask that anyone with knowledge of Sanigar's whereabouts should contact the Superior Police Department at (715)395-7652, the Tip Line at (715)395-7468, or call 911.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
