RCMP investigate shots fired, but find no victim
Burnaby RCMP responded to a number of complaints early Wednesday morning about shots being fired from a moving vehicle in the area north of the Patterson SkyTrain station.
But when they got there, they couldn't find a victim, or any evidence that a building or vehicle had been hit.
They did, however, come across shell casings in two locations, said Staff Sgt. Major John Buis, of the Burnaby RCMP.
"We take these things very seriously," said Buis, who added a check with area hospitals turned up no reports of anyone checking into an emergency ward with gunshot wounds.
Buis said witnesses reported hearing about three to five shots.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
