One person was wounded by gunfire in Maple Ridge on Saturday night, Aug. 1.
When Ridge Meadows RCMP officers responded to multiple reports of shots being fired from a vehicle near Selkirk Avenue and 223rd Street, they located evidence of a shooting and cordoned off the area.
Local area residents reported a black SUV was seen speeding along Selkirk, firing multiple shots at another vehicle.
A police statement called it an “isolated incident” that did not pose a threat to public safety.
Police confirm they responded to the area of Selkirk & 223rd last night for a report of alleged gun shots. This is an isolated incident & there is no threat to public safety. Because the investigation is in early stages no further details are available. More to follow on Tuesday

That victim was later transported to Royal Columbian Hospital in undetermined condition.
