At approximately 2:30 a.m. police responded to several reports of shots fired in the alley behind Gonzo’s Gas along the 900 block of 9 Avenue North. Investigation determined that a 26-year-old female and 30-year-old male were in the alley when they were shot at by subjects in a vehicle. The victims were not injured and the subjects fled the scene.

Police are currently completing a canvass of the neighbourhood but no other injuries have been reported.

The shooting was a targeted incident related to the drug trade and at this time there is no evidence to suggest any further risk to neighbours.
