FARMINGTON - Police are asking for help identifying and locating the people who shot two men at a Meetinghouse Hill Road home Friday.

Even though the incident was not reported until Saturday around 4 p.m., investigators determined the two men - ages 21 and 24 - were shot and wounded at 316 Meetinghouse Hill Road the previous day, according to police. One man, who sustained a gunshot wound to the head, was treated at York Hospital in York, Maine, but checked himself out within hours, while the second man, who sustained a chest wound, was transferred from Portsmouth Regional Hospital to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass., according to police.

After obtaining a warrant, police requested assistance of the Strafford County Regional Tactical Operations Unit to search the home early Sunday morning. No suspects have been taken into custody at this time, according to police.

Police continue to investigate the matter with the help of members of N.H. State Police and the Strafford County Attorney's Office. Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to contact Detective Brian Driscoll at 755-2731, ext. 105, or leave an anonymous tip via the department's Crimeline at 755-9797.
