VERNON - Police are investigating after shots were fired at a home on Palfrey Drive. It's the fifth case this year.

Vernon RCMP was called to Palfrey Drive West in the early morning hours of July 23 after witnesses reported hearing the sound of gunfire, according to a release by Sgt. Tory Romailler. 

"Upon attendance investigators located physical evidence related to the shooting at a residence in the area," he says. "No one was injured but police have spoken to a number witnesses and are continuing to investigate."

In early April, shots were fired at a home on Pottery Road occupied by three children and two adults and later that month shots were fired at a home on Okanagan Avenue. In May, a child was injured when shots were fired at a home on 33 Street. Then on June 26 shots were fired at a home on Scott Road while a child was home alone inside.

Police have said they believe the gunfire is related to the local drug trade.
