“The initial investigation has revealed that shots were fired at a residence in the area but no one was injured in the residence,” reads a statement. “Officers conducted neighbourhood canvassing and spoke with several witnesses to obtain further information.”

Preliminary findings indicate the shooting was targeted at a residence, which has occupants that are known to police.
