RIDGE Meadows RCMP are investigating an incident in which a Maple Ridge residence was hit by gunfire.
On Sunday, March 12, at around 9 p.m., police received multiple 911 reports of what sounded like shots fired in the 21700-block area of Mountainview Crescent. A large police presence, which included general duty members, the Ridge Meadows Investigational Support Team and the RCMP’s Police Dog Services responded.
Police quickly discovered evidence of gunfire and the area was immediately contained.
The investigation has revealed that one residence in the area was hit by gunfire. The residence was occupied at the time of the incident but no gunshot injuries occurred. The victims are cooperating with the police investigation.
Additionally, a car fire was reported in the 27100-block of 104 avenue shortly after the initial incident and police are working to determine if the two incidents are linked.
The investigation is in the early stages; however, police do not believe this incident is related to the IHIT investigation that occurred in the 21800-block of 122 Avenue on March 4.
Police remain on scene, including the Ridge Meadows’ RCMP Forensic Identification Team, and Victim Services is being offered to residents.
If you have any information and/or home security footage from the area of Mountainview Crescent or the 27100-block of 104 Avenue and have not already spoken to police, you are requested to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.
