One witness told CTV News they were working in his office when shots rang out.

“(I) heard about five shots and peeped out the window,” he said. “(I) saw the shells lying on the ground, and then a black Hyundai and a lady – or it looked like a lady – (was) kind of hunched over the steering wheel.

“(There was) another guy in a pickup truck that seemed to be yelling at her. (I’m) not sure what was going on. It was a little spooky.”

CCTV footage from area businesses and residents is being collected by the police.

No arrests have been made.
