Niagara Regional Police are continuing their investigation into a targeted drive-by shooting in a quiet St. Davids neighbourhood.

Investigators are seeking at least two men after four shots were fired at a house on 31 Kenmir Ave. No one was home at a time of the shooting and only the exterior of the house was damaged, police said.

The property was owned by Francesca Pasco as of 2015, public records from the Ontario land registry office show.

The house was sold for $1.3 million on Aug. 28 to a couple who had not yet moved in at the time of the shooting.

Police said the shooter was a rear passenger in an older, possibly early 2000s, four-door silver Volkswagen Golf. The car had a light blue patch on the front passenger door and the front silver rims are different than the rear silver rims, police said.

The car was seen in the neighbourhood several hours before the shooting, the investigators said.

“While there were no injuries, detectives believe this was a targeted event,” police said in a statement.

No reason or motive for the shooting is known and police are not releasing any details.

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 905-688-4111, dial option 3, badge #9361.
