North Van RCMP were called out around 3 am after gunshots rang out in the 400-block of East 11th Street.

“Investigators are actively working to identify the suspects and the intended target(s) of this shooting,” said RCMP spokesman Sgt. Peter DeVries in a release.

A motive hasn’t been determined, and there’s no evidence anyone was hit by the bullets.

“Witnesses reported seeing two individuals, one of whom fired at the residence, flee the scene in a vehicle immediately after the shooting,” said DeVries.

The suspected getaway vehicle is a newer-model white Toyota RAV4. It was last seen headed south on Moody Avenue.

Though the target isn’t immediately clear, the residence is “known to police and has been the subject of numerous reports related to drugs, violence and other offenses in recent months,” said DeVries. Investigators are looking into links with other recent Metro Vancouver shootings and with the ongoing gang conflict.

“Gun violence has impacted every community in the Lower Mainland,” said DeVries. “We stand united with our partners across all our communities to stand up against these reckless acts that endanger our neighbourhoods.”
