Vancouver Police investigate drive-by shooting

Vancouver Police are looking for any additional witnesses or leads in this case

VANCOUVER – NOTE: Vancouver Police have corrected earlier reports that the house was rented through AirBnB. It was actually rented through VRBO.

The Vancouver Police Department is investigating a series of gunshots believed to be associated with a large gathering in East Vancouver early Sunday morning.

On Sunday (June 28) at about 2:47 a.m., Vancouver Police responded to multiple calls of shots fired in the 1000 block of NE 151st Ave.  An additional 9-1-1 call came in from a victim who reported that her vehicle was shot at while she was delivering newspapers.  

The victim, who was driving her vehicle at the time, sustained multiple gunshots through the front windshield of her vehicle, with the bullets barely missing her. She was evaluated by on-scene emergency medical personnel and was determined to be uninjured.  

An occupied home in the area was also shot multiple times during this incident, with no injuries to occupants reported.  

According to a Vancouver Police Department news release, the incident appears to be associated with a home rented through VRBO in the area the shots were fired. A large party was allegedly occurring at the residence in the 1100 block of NE 151st Ave.  Police recovered over 25 bullet casings in the street near that residence.

Vancouver Police are looking for any additional witnesses or leads in this case.  Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Department Tip Line at (360) 487-7399.

Any victims who have not reported property damage should call 3-1-1.
