The town of Swan River has been the site of some violent incidents over the past few days, which police say are targeted and not random.

On Sunday night, a fire broke out at the Starlite Trailer Court with nobody inside. Police have determined it was an arson and are looking into if it’s connected with a shooting that happened at the same place on Saturday.

And then early Tuesday morning, police received reports of shots being fire at a residence on 6th Avenue. Officers found a vehicle with a window shot out, but no injuries were reported.
