Brockville police are looking for suspects after a home invasion and a report of gunshots Friday night.

According to police, several people called 9-1-1 shortly after 8 p.m. about gunshots in the Pine Street area. Police began searching for suspects, who were believed to be in a small, white sedan.

While investigating, a home invasion on George Street was reported. The home invasion and the shooting are believed to be connected.
