Police have been conducting further neighbourhood inquiries in relation to the targeted shooting that occurred the night before.
A member of the public approached officers and advised that they had found a handgun in a snow bank on Moss Avenue. The gun was seized as evidence.
A short time later, police received a report of a suspicious vehicle on Upland Street. Frontline officers attended and found a Chevrolet SUV with broken windows and damage that appeared to be from several bullet holes. The vehicle was seized as part of this investigation.
This incident was a targeted attack and directly associated to the drug trade, say police. Investigators have no reason to believe the general public is at risk. This investigation is continuing and is a priority for the Detachment.
