Police said a house in the downtown area of St. John was shot dead last night, but no one was hurt.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary arrives in full force, with four different units responding to the call of fire. A better explanation of the location of the house is not released.
Shortly after arriving, police said they could confirm "there were a number of shots."
The main crime unit of RNC is investigating.
"This is believed to be targeted action and members of the general public are not at risk," read an overnight report issued by the police.
