Delta police say there is no evidence of shots being fired despite several reports Sunday night in Tsawwassen.
DPD responded to three reports of possible shots fired just before 10 p.m. Sept. 15 in the vicinity of the Big Splash water park, located on the northwest corner of Highway 17 and Salish Sea Drive.
Multiple police officers responded quickly, and while investigating located individuals who also reported hearing what they felt were shots fired in the area.
“Our officers did an extensive check of the area last night, both on foot and by vehicle,” said DPD spokesperson Cris Leykauf. “Our officers did not find any evidence that gun shots had been fired, such as shell casings, discarded weapons or witnesses who had seen any such activity. Furthermore police did not locate any injured parties, and no injuries have been reported to police.”
No damaged property has been located or reported to date, she added.
Leykauf said the DPD Tsawwassen First Nation Service Team is continuing the investigation today [Monday], and officers are canvassing for further witnesses, any potential video evidence and more.
“We understand that concern in the community is heightened, after the incident of shots fired in Tsawwassen on Sept. 11,” said Leykauf. “In that case police did find evidence that a vehicle had been hit. However, at this point we don’t have any confirmation that there has been a further shots fired incident.”
Anyone with further information is asked to contact police at 604-946-4411 and refer to file No. 19-21211.
