Red Deer RCMP are looking for two suspects connected to a home invasion where shots were fired at a townhouse in West Park on Aug. 1.

One suspect carried a long-barrelled gun, which was discharged inside the home. The other brandished a handgun.

Police released few details on the circumstances around the gunfire.

The male resident escaped with minor injuries and called for help.

The two men fled the house in what could be an older red two-door coupe.

The victim was treated on scene for his injuries.

The second suspect is described as Caucasian with tanned skin and dark hair and dark eyes. He is clean shaven and between 1.8 metres and 1.83 metres tall (5-foot-11 to six-feet) and weighs 82 kg (180 pounds).
