ORLANDO, Fla. – Two men hid in the bathroom of their UCF-area home when two gunmen broke into their house and fired shots during a burglary, deputies said.

No one was injured in the incident, which occurred around 4 a.m. Thursday on Coral Reef Drive, just east of Alafaya Trail.

According to officials, Orange County sheriff's deputies were called to the home for a report of a burglary with shots fired.  Deputies said they heard gunshots as they traveled to the house.

Officials said deputies discovered a man with a gun inside a car.  He was taken into custody for questioning.  A man in the rear of the residence ran off, however, and was not immediately located.

The victims called 911 while hiding in the bathroom, deputies said.

Deputies said they found several guns and drugs inside the house.

No other information was released.
