On Sunday, March 12, at around 9:00 PM, police received multiple 911 reports of what sounded like shots fired in the 21700 block area of Mountainview Crescent. A large police presence, which included general duty members, the Ridge Meadows Investigational Support Team and the RCMP’s Police Dog Services responded. Upon arrival, police quickly discovered evidence of gunfire and the area was immediately contained.

The investigation has revealed that one residence in the area was hit by gunfire. The residence was occupied at the time of the incident but no gunshot injuries occurred. The victims are cooperating with the police investigation. Additionally, a car fire was reported in the 27100 block of 104 avenue shortly after the initial incident and police are working to determine if the two incidents are linked.
