The Lloydminster RCMP are looking into a shooting that left a local home riddled with bullets.
According to Constable Grant Kirzinger, the spokesperson for the detachment, police were called to a home located in the 4600 block of 56 Avenue on Tuesday night, after residents of the home found multiple bullet holes in the front of the house.
Officers attended the residence, as well as the Forensic Identification Unit, and found that the home had been shot at multiple times.
The RCMP are now looking for witnesses to the shooting, which took place between Nov. 26 and Nov 29. They are also determining the nature of the incident, which may have been targeted.
According to a tenant of the home, no one was in the house at the time of the shooting, and the damage was only discovered after they came home from a trip out of town.
“There was shots all over the front of my house, glass all inside, and there are bullets lodged in my furniture,” said the tenant.
“They just missed my cat, which makes me happy.”
Police also removed furniture from the home, due to the bullets being lodged inside.
The tenant said someone had come to the home on the same day the police arrived, asking about a person who had lived at the home in the previous year.
“I don’t know who he is,” said the tenant.
“I just said ‘I don’t know’. There was a couple that lived here prior to me, and they’re good people, they’re not in riff-raff. I know it has nothing to do with them.”
The tenant also said they are now scared for their life, in the wake of the shooting.
“I won’t lie, I’m in the process of looking for somewhere else to live,” said the tenant.
“I just don’t feel warm and fuzzy about being here at all, anymore. I know Lloyd is getting really rough, and people are getting desperate, and people are robbing people, but this is insane. I could have died, that’s where my couch is.”
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Lloydminster RCMP at 780-808-8300 or contact Crime Stoppers.
