ORIGINAL STORY MAY 2 2018 – Social media was buzzing after reports that shots were fired near a home on Fairview Drive between Strathcona Road and Belair Drive. Sirens could be heard roaring through Downtown en route to Fairfield Island shortly after 7:30PM on Wednesday evening.
A number of streets were in lock down , and adding to the drama, Facebook posts claimed a school play was on at Strathcona Elementary at the time and no one was allowed to leave the building until Police secured the area.
RCMP have yet to make a statement. Again, lots of rumours on social media, all of them unconfirmed, however one post claimed it could have been a drive by near a home that has a questionable reputation.
