Shortly after 4:00 a.m. this morning, Monday, April 20, 2020, we received a call regarding shots fired at a residence on MR 80 near 5th Street in Val Caron. No injuries were reported, however there were three individuals inside the home at the time of the incident.

Officers arrived on scene a short time later, securing the residence and shutting down MR 80 for a short period of time in order to collect physical evidence as a result of what is believed to have been a drive by shooting.

Detectives from our Criminal Investigations Division, Forensics Unit and Patrol Operations remain on scene as the investigation into this matter is ongoing.

This is believed to be a targeted and isolated incident. We do not believe there to be any threat to the general public.

Officers will be canvassing the area throughout the day and anyone with video surveillance footage in the area or information related to this incident is asked to contact us at 705-675-9171.
