“There’s not, unfortunately, a lot out there other than that residence that was targeted does seem to be the only place that was of interest and there are no threats to the safety of the public,” said Const. Jason Kenny.

Occupants were home at the time, but no injuries were reported. Kenny said there was no firearm recovered from the scene and there are no suspect descriptions.

Police responded to the second report of gunshots at around 2:20 p.m. Saturday at a hotel at Wellington Road and Southdale Road.

Officers evacuated guests from the building, but no suspicious activity was discovered. Guests were allowed to return to their rooms at around 7 p.m.
