Delta police remain at the scene in Tsawwassen after reports of shots being fired late Wednesday evening.
According to DPD, officers responded to a report of shots being fired in the 5500 block of 18th Ave. at approximately 11:50 p.m.
“There were no reported injuries, but a vehicle was hit,” said DPD spokesperson Kristy Neville. “The incident is not believed to be gang related and instead a result of an ongoing dispute between parties known to each other.”
She said a number of police resources were called into the area, including the Lower Mainland District Police Dog Services.
“The suspect(s) fled the scene prior to police arrival and was not located,” she added. No arrests have been made and I can’t comment any further on suspects as the investigation is ongoing.”
Police say residents in the area can expect an increased police presence while the investigation continues.
