An apparent case of road rage resulted in at least one bullet being fired through a car in Richmond, B.C.

Police were called on Monday around 8:30 p.m. about shots fired in the busy area of Westminster Highway and Garden City Road, said RCMP in a news release.

"We believe that the shooting was initiated by a driving altercation and it appears to have been taken to the extreme," said RCMP Cpl. Dennis Hwang in a statement.

Patrol officers found a bullet hole in a white, late-model Toyota Corolla. The 22-year-old male driver was not hurt.

A man was seen speeding away in a dark-coloured sedan northbound on Garden City Road. RCMP are asking anyone who saw the vehicle to contact them.

Investigators are going through surveillance footage from the area, and checking if there are links to other recent shootings, he added.
