One of the residents of the home was injured and sent to hospital but has since been released. 

Police have taped off the home but said they don't believe there's a risk to anyone else in the area.

"At the moment, we have no reason to believe the general public is at risk and that this was a targeted attack," said Moore.​

RCMP are now seeking the public's assistance and are asking for anyone with information related to the investigation to contact RCMP directly or call Crime Stoppers.
