Two men broke into a home in Lunenburg, N.S., on Thursday.

At 4:33 a.m., Lunenburg District RCMP responded to a 911 call reporting a home invasion on Natural Forest Lake Rd. in Upper Cornwall, where one of the suspects discharged a shotgun.

RCMP were also notified at 5:07 a.m. that there was a man at the South Shore Regional Hospital who had been shot, but was not the same victim from the earlier incident. Police have determined that the two different homes were invaded on the same day.
