Several people reported gunshots in the area to police. Officers found evidence of a shooting — including stray bullets at the scene and in a nearby building — but no victims or suspects.

“Due to the number of shots fired,” CPS said, “the scene was held for several hours so investigators could conduct a thorough search of the scene in the daylight.”

After watching CCTV footage and tracking the movements of the vehicles involved, police later found a vehicle of interest up on a tow truck near the 100 block of 16 Avenue NW. The vehicle was seized and police are trying to identify another vehicle involved.

“This shooting is believed to be targeted,” police said in a news release.

“This is yet another example of brazen violence that put our entire community at risk,” said Acting Staff Sgt. Mike Sushelnitsky of the organized crime response unit.

“We have dedicated a number of resources from across the service to hold those responsible accountable, as well as to suppress further incidents of violence.”
