2 people shot in east Regina

Regina police are investigating after two people were shot early Sunday morning in east Regina.

Officers were sent to a business in the 1900 block of Fleet Street just after 5:00 a.m. CST.

They found two victims there with gunshot wounds and paramedics took them to hospital. Their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Police then learned the shootings took place outside at a different location — the 200 block of Fines Drive, just a few blocks from the business where the victims were found.

Dale Lakeman lives on the same block police say the shootings happened.

"Between 4:15 and 4:30 I heard bang bang," he said. "And I'm like there's something happening."

Lakeman said it got him up and he looked outside his window. He said he thought it was someone breaking into a shed.

"You really don't expect that to be like gunshots," he said.

It was unexpected, he said because typically the area has people who may break windows or break into sheds, but not gunfire.

Employees at the Petro-Canada on Fleet St. confirmed two people entered the business this morning.

The investigation is still ongoing, but police said in a release the shootings were not random occurrences.
