Two people are in police custody after an alleged home invasion early Sunday at a house on Avenue O South.

The Saskatoon police street gang unit is leading the investigation after several people entered the home and assaulted a resident just after midnight.

One of the suspects was believed to have a firearm and a gun was recovered nearby as was additional evidence, police said in a news release.

Police say they have identified several persons of interest.

Two people are in custody on unrelated charges but police say they expect to lay charges related to the home invasion.
