West Shore RCMP is investigating a shooting that took place in Langford on Canada Day.
Police say that they received a report of a possible gunshot in the area of the 2800-block of Jacklin Road at approximately 10:45 p.m.
“In the midst of Canada Day celebrations, the sounds of gunshots almost blended into the fireworks in one West Shore community,” reads a statement from police.
Further reports to police helped officers determine that there had in fact been a shooting and that an unoccupied parked vehicle in the area was damaged.
At this time is appears that bullets struck both a vehicle and the townhome behind it, said Cst. Jesse Schroeder, of the West Shore RCMP Serious Crime Section,
Thankfully no one was injured, but this could easily have been a different story.
