Delta Police investigate first shooting since May 2015

DELTA — Delta Police arrested two men after shots were fired at a house and vehicle in North Delta early Thursday morning.

Police were called to the 8500-block of 114th Street at about 8:30 p.m, Wednesday in response to a call about shots being fired in the area and found no evidence of that. A white Chrysler 300, a gold coloured Honda and a white Lincoln were scene leaving the area, Sgt. Sarah Swallow said.

Then, at 12:20 a.m. Thursday, Delta Police responded to a second report of shots fired, this time in the 7700-block of 117th Street.

“On arrival, officers located a residence and vehicle that had been shot,” Swallow said. “No one in the residence or surrounding area was injured.”

Police found a gold coloured Honda they suspect was involved in the shooting and arrested two Delta men.

“The two men remain in custody and charges against them are pending,” Swallow said. “Unfortunately, the residents of the targeted house are uncooperative with the police investigation.”

Swallow said this was the first confirmed shooting in Delta since May 2015.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Delta Police at 604-946-4411.
