Four Arrests After Shots Fired

Two men and two women have been arrested after shots were fired at officers from a residence early this morning.

Police received information at around 1:30 a.m. that at least two men with firearms were seen entering a house near Sophia Street and East 51st Avenue. Officers arrived and were attempting to make contact with the people inside, when a man came out and allegedly fired a number of shots before going back inside. No one was injured.

Members of the VPD’s Emergency Response Team and negotiators were able to safely arrest two men and two women just before 4:30 this morning. Major Crime detectives have taken over the investigation and there is no reason to believe the public are at risk.

No additional information is available at this time.
