Police were called to a break and enter in progress at a home in the 9800-block of Park Lane, Lavington at about 1 a.m. Friday, Feb. 8. In a news release Friday morning, police said there were possible shots fired and one occupant of the home suffered non-life threatening injuries.

About half an hour later, the RCMP was called to an adress in the 4800-block of 27th Street where one man sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He later died as a result of his injuries.

Brett said they believed the incidents may be related.
