The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is looking into an incident in which shots were fired at Mission RCMP Thursday night putting at least one bullet hole into a police cruiser.

Police say they were responding to a call of shots fired in the 32000 block of Best Avenue in Mission at 8:41 p.m. PT.

"Upon their arrival at the scene, shots were allegedly fired at RCMP members who quickly took cover," said RCMP in a written statement.  

"We can confirm one shot struck a police vehicle."

Police say members of the Lower Mainland's Emergency Response team and additional officers from the Mission detachment were deployed to the area, but the suspect surrendered to police "and was apprehended without incident."

No one was injured in the incident.

Neighbour hears shots in the night

Neighbour Bill Blume says he heard at least three shots, "pop-pop-pop."

"And then police were there really quick. I mean really fast, eh," he said. "Once they got there, there was police cars, like, all over the place and they got all their gear on and they went up between the house right across from us and the next house."

Blume says there's been noise disturbances before at the home involved in the incident. He says there are two homes near each other whose occupants are related and one of those homes was involved in the disturbance.

IHIT  says it has taken over the investigation from the RCMP, but is not releasing any more information.
