RCMP media officer Cpl. Jennifer Clarke confirmed police suspect this was a targeted incident but they are still looking for information.
“This is a very troubling incident. The four people weren’t seriously injured, but it’s terrifying nonetheless,” she said, adding incidents such as these require the community’s help in stopping.
“We have to alarm the people involved and the community – this is probably the time to provide whatever information they have to help us get to the bottom of what caused this. They do need to call us.”
