Police investigate gunshots in Ottawa
Ottawa police are investigating two reports of shots fired in the city’s Centretown and downtown areas overnight.
Police say officers first responded to a reported shooting on Highway 417 eastbound near the Rochester Street exit at about 10:30 p.m. Friday.
They found a car carrying five people with two bullet holes, but nobody was injured. Police said the two shots were fired by a suspect from a black sedan at a vehicle with five Muslim women, who were wearing hijabs. Police would not indicate whether the incident involved hate.
A 45-calibre bullet pierced the passenger-side door and a second bullet hit the side window of the rear seat, police said.
