No injuries have been reported and both vehicles left the area but the statement says one vehicle, believed to be related to the gunfire, was found burned in Langley.

Police say there's no immediate information connecting the occupants or the vehicles to locations or incidents in Delta.

The statement says it's believed everyone involved was passing through the municipality when the violence occurred.
