Shots were fired at a home in a quiet Vernon residential neighbourhood this morning and police are investigating.

RCMP said several rounds were discharged into the home and vehicles on a property on Cunningham Road at around 5:15 a.m. today, Sept. 26. Five people were inside the home at the time and no injuries have been reported. 

Police have released a surveillance image of a vehicle seen fleeing the area at the time of the shooting. Police said it's an older red, two-door hatchback and was last seen travelling eastbound on Silver Star Road.

“Investigators have reason to believe this to be a targeted incident,” Vernon North Okanagan RCMP media relations officer Const. Chris Terleski in a media release. “Regardless of the fact that no one was injured, acts such as this put our entire community at risk and we are urging anyone with information to come forward to police.”

Anyone with information with information that may assist the investigation is asked to contact the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171 and quote file number 2022-17221.
