RCMP in Dauphin, Man., say two separate gunshot incidents in the city have led to an investigation, and police are asking the public for help.

On Monday, at 8:30 p.m. police say they received a report of shots fired at a strip mall in the 1300 block of Main Street South.

Police say officers went to the scene and began to investigate. No one was found to have been injured and no buildings were damaged, but police did find shell casings in the parking lot.

Police are looking for a blue car, perhaps a Chevrolet Cruise or Malibu, that was at the location at the time of the shots. They say there were three occupants in the vehicle, and it left the parking lot heading south on Main Street.

Police say only a couple hours later another gunshot was reported at a home on Main Street North.
