Burnaby RCMP say nobody hurt in early-morning shooting

Burnaby RCMP are investigating after a gun was fired at a car early Wednesday morning.

It happened at a townhouse complex on Tretheway Drive just after 1 a.m. 

Sgt. Jeff Ausmus said three people were in the car at the time, but none of them was hit.

The shooter fled in a vehicle before anyone could get a look at the licence plate. 

Ausmus said neither the car that was shot at nor its occupants have any apparent ties to gang activity. He said, at this time, it appears to be a random shooting. 

An RCMP K-9 unit was on scene searching the area, but no suspect was found. 

The car, a grey sedan, was towed from the scene as evidence.
