Four people were inside the Sarah Street home at around 9 p.m. when it happened.
"Three male parties had broken into the residence who were armed with firearms," explains Const. Shane Siebert with the Brantford Police Serivce.
One person was reportedly assaulted. Then, as the suspects fled, shots were fired.
