File # 2017-2718

On April 5 at 3:22 a.m., the Oceanside RCMP responded to a call from residents of the 500 block of Martindale Road in Parksville reporting that 3 gunshots were heard.

Upon attendance, police discovered that 2 abandoned vehicles on a particular property had been hit by rounds from a shotgun in an apparent drive-by shooting. The property in which the vehicles were parked is well known to police for property crime and drug related offences.

There were no injuries as a result of the gunfire and it appears that the abandoned vehicles were the intended target.

Oceanside RCMP and RCMP Forensic Specialists are still actively investigating. If you have any information about this crime, please call the Oceanside RCMP at (250) 248-6111 or report anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477
