Hattiesburg police investigate home invasion

Hattiesburg police are investigating an alleged home invasion that took place on the same street where another major drug bust occurred on Wednesday.

Officers said a resident inside this home on the 300 Block of Bowling Street fired a weapon at two suspects who forced their way in around noon.

The victim was uninjured. Officers said they are questioning a person of interest who is at a local hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. Thursday, police arrested a Hattiesburg man at another Bowling Street residence on multiple drug charges.

"It appears now that there was only one individual inside at house at the time of the incident and two suspects who actually forced entry into the house," said Synarus Green, police spokesperson. "There was a question of whether or not this was connected or related to any other incidents in the area, but at this time, we have not made any connection between this and any other arrest or investigation we've had in the general area within the last week."

Police have not identified the victim or any possible suspects.
