Two arrested after shots fired in North Delta

Police say the targeted incident the first shooting in the municipality since May 2015.

Two arrests have been made following a shooting in North Delta early Thursday morning.

Delta Police responded to a report of shots fired in the 7700-block of 117 Street at 12:20 a.m. and after confirming a residence and vehicle had been fired upon, arrested two males from Delta.

There were no injuries in the residence or the surrounding area. Police located a gold Honda vehicle believed to be involved, and with the assistance of Surrey RCMP, arrested the two men.

An investigation into what Delta Police are calling a targeted shooting is underway. The residents of the targeted house are not cooperating with police.
