Police arrested a man in relation to an early-morning attack at a Lexington home.

Lexington police arrested Edgar Vieyra and charged him with assault and burglary.

Officials said they responded to reports of shots fired at 1845 Wayland Drive on Monday just after 2 a.m.
 
When they arrived, they discovered two people shot and another person assaulted in the front of the home.
 
Officials also say Vieyra was tackled by another occupant of the home who held him down until police arrived--and add he had broken into the residence.

All of this happened with four young children in the home, according to police.

They said the children slept through the incident.

Police said the two shooting victims were transported to the hospital, but there is no word on their condition.

Officials said Vieyra does know the victims, but wouldn't say how.
