An early morning shooting has rocked a quiet Comox Valley neighbourhood.
Two Courtenay businesses have been cordoned off with police tape at the intersection of Cumberland Road and Piercy Avenue Sunday.
RCMP said they were called to the area for reports of shots being fired, when they arrived, they found a bullet had struck the side of the Coffee Love Bug and another bullet shattered its door. A second building appeared to have been hit, along with an unoccupied vehicle.
"We came across a scene where we know that shots have been fired, that multiple shots have been fired," said Const. Monika Terragni with the Comox Valley RCMP. "At this time, we've got investigators who are looking into exactly what happened."
One nearby resident told CTV News that she heard the gunfire around 1:15 a.m. and the ordeal lasted about five minutes, adding she counted 15 distinct shots.
