Temple police are investigating an attempted burglary that resulted in two people being shot.

Temple Police Department Media Relations Specialists Cody Weems wrote in a news release that police responded to a call from the 2200 block of South 47th Street around 5:30 AM Friday. Upon arrival, they found two injured men. They were transported to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in stable condition.

A preliminary investigation indicates that shots were fired inside a home during an attempted burglary. Police later found illegal controlled substances inside are working to determine if they were a contributing factor. Police did not say what the substances were.
