Shot fired into Queensborough home

New Westminster police are investigating a shot being fired into a Queensborough residence last Thursday.

The NWPD said the residents of the home in the 200 block of Salter Street phoned late that afternoon to say they'd found a bullet hole in their patio window. Police said an initial investigation indicated a shot was fired at some point earlier in the day when no one was home.

According to police, the suite's occupants don't have a history with police and only recently moved in so investigators don't believe they were the intended targets.

"This kind of incident is of great concern to us. And while we are unable to definitely say what the motive was behind it, we are confident the current occupants of the residence were not the intended targets," said Staff-Sgt. Paul Hyland.

The bullet has been sent for forensic analysis.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Const. Leigh Hodak at 604-525-5411 or Crimestoppers 1-800-222-8477.
