KITCHENER -- Police are investigating after a shots were fired at a Brantford home on Wednesday night, including into the bedroom of a sleeping two-year-old girl.
The bullets went into the second storey of the Strawberry Lane home at around 11:15 p.m.

Police believe this is the 16th shooting this year.

"I am angry, shocked and appalled that we have incidents like this happening in our community," Mayor Kevin Davis says in a statement sent to CTV.
"Increased gun violence is a serious issue which our community and many other communities in the Province are dealing with."
The shooter is unknown at this time.
There is also no word on a motive for the shooting or if anyone was injured.
