COQUITLAM Coquitlam Mounties have released more details about a double shooting in a quiet neighbourhood Thursday night.
Police were called to a home in the 3200 block of Ballenas Court in east Coquitlam after a man and a woman were shot.
The two victims were taken to hospital and listed in stable condition.
Police also note the incident is related to a vehicle seized from the McDonalds parking lot on North Road near Austin Avenue that is part of the investigation.
Investigators suggested the shooting is targeted and possibly drug related.
An RCMP press release stated that both the two victims and the home are known to police.
Coquitlam RCMPs major crime section has taken over the investigation and no one related to the incident has been arrested at this point.
Kevin Maruk lives near the house and said he heard a dog barking and tires screeching before falling asleep.
By morning, several cop cars were in front of the home.
Maruk said a man in his 50s lives on the property, but suggested the bottom portion of the house has been rented out.
Maruk said the neighbourhood is pretty good, but pointed out that particular house has been a concern for residents.
He was a nice guy when we walked by, but a lot of people seemed to hang out there, he said.
Another neighbour, who did not want to be identified, said city bylaw officers have issued numerous tickets to the homeowner.
That neighbour had talked to a fellow neighbour, who mentioned hearing someone banging on the door of the downstairs suite and a man and a woman yelling just before 11 p.m.
Despite the incident, the man said the neighbourhood is a great place to live.
