ANDOVER, MASS. (WHDH) - Law enforcement officials are investigating a reported home invasion in Lawrence, a source told 7News.
Investigators do not believe the home invasion on Andover Street Thursday was a random act and say it appears to be drug-related, sources tell 7News Steve Cooper.
Two suspects reportedly entered the apartment and pistol-whipped the victim, sources added. The victim then apparently jumped out of a window to escape. A SWAT team was called to the scene, but the suspects were not located.
Jamie Lemay, who watched the response unfold, said several officers could be seen outside the apartment with their guns drawn.
“They all had guns trained on the house,” Lemay said. ” They were saying come out with your hands up.”
Police are now looking for the suspects.
A photo sent to 7News from the scene showed a woman with a baby leaving a home on Andover Street while police officers gather outside.
