On March 17th at approximately 8 p.m., Blackfalds RCMP responded to a report of three gunshots near a rural property in Popular Ridge west of Red Deer.

A witness reported that three rounds were fired from a west bound vehicle on Township Road 384 near the intersection of Range Road 283. One of the rounds fired struck a residence and went into an unoccupied bedroom.
