The neighbours said they heard what sounded like a gun shot after which was a large police presence at the small house.

Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail said he could not release any details about the “police incident” that occurred in the 46000 block of Second Avenue.

“The whole incident remains under investigation,” Rail said, adding that they believe whatever occurred was targeted.
