Police have released CCTV footage of two men armed with a gun they believe forced their way into a home in Adelaide’s northern suburbs.
The pair forced their way into a home on Willison Road at Elizabeth South on Tuesday about 2.45am, South Australia Police said in a statement.
They fired a shot into a room but a man in his late 30s who was inside the home at the time was not injured.
The pair then stole items from the man’s home, police say.
Police said two men, not wearing masks, were also caught on CCTV at the same property on May 8 about 3am. SA Police believe the two incidents may be linked.
Detective Chief Inspector Catherine Hilliard said the men were not known to the victim inside the home and it appeared to be “an isolated incident”.
“The victim was traumatised and it was a terrifying experience for him,” Det Insp Hilliard said.
“There are no links to organised crime at this point in time, however we looking at all types of lines of inquiry in relation to the investigation.”
She added the shot during Tuesday’s incident was fired “through a bedroom door”.
SA Police have also door-knocked residents in the area as part of the investigation.

Det Insp Hilliard said it was hard to tell whether the men filmed on Tuesday were the same as the pair seen on May 8 but added they were wearing similar clothing.
She said the man inside the home saw May 8’s CCTV footage after hearing noise in his backyard, which made him anxious.
That initial CCTV footage was not reported to police.
