File # 2022-38888

The Nanaimo RCMP is investigating an incident in which multiple shots were fired at a residence. The incident occurred just before 10 PM on Wednesday November 2, 2022, and involved a home located in the 700 block of Nicol St.

Several 911 calls were received which resulted in numerous officers attending. There were no reported injuries and the suspects had fled prior to police arriving on scene. Police Dog Services(PDS) attended; however, a track was not obtained. Officers, with the assistance of PDS, retrieved a number of bullet casings.

Officers are canvassing the surrounding area for video surveillance and knocking on doors to locate any 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.
