A handful of police cars soon arrive on the scene, after which residents are seen talking to officers.

At the same time, callers can be heard telling 9-1-1 operators, “I just got the shock of my life, it sounded like really loud, like gunshots.”

Police say the incident took place on June 7, 2020 at around 2 a.m. and police are hoping that the released footage will spur more tips for investigation.

This is a part of the ongoing investigation, its the next investigative step for this one, especially when we do know that there was a number of witnesses who were in the area at the time who ended up leaving,” Const. Andre Johnson told Global News.

“So it is just another step in the investigation to appeal witnesses to come forward and to contact investigators so we can find those who are responsible.”
