Police investigating after shots fired at homes in Kitchener, Waterloo
KITCHENER -- Police are investigating a pair of shootings in Kitchener and Waterloo.
The first reportedly happened at around 4 a.m. Friday in the area of Erbsville Road and Laurelwood Drive.
Officials said that shots were reportedly shot at a residence in the area. They're calling it an active investigation.
"Early in the morning, when we needed to drive the car, we noticed two windows were damaged," a resident told CTV News.
At least three police cruisers were seen near a taped off section of road at around 8 a.m.
Police said a silver Honda Civic with tinted windows was spotted fleeing the area.
"Police engaged in a pursuit which was later terminated due to public safety reasons in the area of Bleams Road," Const. Ashley Dietrich with the Waterloo Regional Police Service said.
Officers were also on the scene of a similar incident in Kitchener on Friday morning, where somebody reportedly shot at a home on Apple Ridge Drive.
Neighbours said the gunshots woke them up.
"There was a car that was driving down the street and it sped away rather quickly," a resident said.
The neighbourhood is still in shock.
"It's a good school, fun place to be, a great place for Halloween," said Mike Miller, whose daughter goes to school in the area. "So, kind of surprising."
There was an increased police presence in the areas throughout the morning, but police said they don't believe there's concern for public safety.
Nobody was injured in the incidents, police said Friday, and no schools were closed as a result of the shootings.
Police have not said whether these incidents are related.
