Delta police are dealing with what they believe is the region's latest gang-related shooting.

Shots rang out at about 8 p.m. in North Delta Tuesday night as a Mercedes Benz SUV was hit with several bullets in what's believed to be a targeted attack in the 9200-block of 114 Street.

Police would not be specific about the weapon except to say it was not an automatic.

Neither of the two people in the car was hurt, but the passenger in the SUV is known to police and has some connection to gang activity.

Police would not say which gang that person with which that person is associated.

Both driver and passenger are males and about 20 years old.

Delta Police Cst. Ciaran Feenan said police do not believe there is a threat to the public at this point.

"We are confident that it was a targeted shooting," Feenan said. "At this point it is an isolated, targeted incident."
