File # 2021-12244

In the midst of Canada Day celebrations, the sounds of gunshots almost blended into the fireworks in one West Shore community.

On July 1, 2021, at 10:45 pm, the West Shore RCMP received a report of possible gunshots in the area of 2800 block of Jacklin Road, Langford BC. Further reports determined that there had in fact been a shooting, and that an unoccupied parked vehicle nearby 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.

Police are asking if anyone saw anything suspicious in the area, or has surveillance footage of the area, to contact the West Shore RCMP General Investigation Section. Also, if you have any knowledge of this incident, please contact the West Shore RCMP at (250) 474-2264 or if you wish to remain anonymous, call CRIME STOPPERS at 1-899-8477 (TIPS)
