Mounties were called to Pitt Meadows Monday morning after an overnight targeted shooting at an incorrect address.
Ridge Meadows RCMP received a call around 2:45 a.m. from a resident reporting what they said sounded like gun shots followed by a car speeding away in the 18800-block area of 122nd Avenue, according to Const. Julie Klaussner.
Police said they arrived on scene to find bullet holes in a residence, and shell casings in the area.
“The residence is not known to police and has no history of criminal activity,” Klaussner said.
A resident in the area told The News they heard nine or 10 gun shots at about 2:44 a.m. that sounded like firecrackers.
