RCMP are investigating an incident in which multiple shots were fired at a Nanaimo residence. 

On Wednesday, November 2nd at around 10 p.m., police attended a home in the 700-block of Nicol Street.

Police say several 911 calls were received which resulted in multiple officers attending the scene. 

According to police, upon arriving they found that no one was injured in the incident and any suspects had fled the scene before officers got to the residence. 

Police Dog Services (PDS) also attended the scene to try and track the suspects. However, a track was not obtained by the canine. 

Officers say they found multiple bullet casings at the scene of the crime. 

RCMP are canvassing the area for video surveillance footage and are knocking on doors to try and find eye witnesses.

“Based on evidence obtained to date, this incident does not appear to be random and the residence was most likely targeted,” said R/Cst Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

The investigation remains ongoing.
