WORCESTER (WHDH) - Two people were shot in a reported home invasion in Worcester Saturday night.

Police responded to a home on Dawson Road just after 10 p.m. on Saturday and found a man on the ground by the side of the home who had been shot in the leg.

Police entered the home and found another man who had been shot, a 24-year-old man. A 21-year-old woman was also in the home, having suffered a minor ankle injury.

Police were told the man outside was a suspect in the home invasion.

The two gunshot victims were taken to a local hospital. Their condition is not known at the time.
