Four people have been arrested after the downtown police detachment was targeted in a drive-by shooting.

Two large second-storey windows above the front entrance were damaged in the incident that happened shortly before 4 p.m. The windows were damaged but did not break because of a protective coating.

Police have not identified the weapon, or whether it was a real gun or replica, such as an Airsoft-type weapon.

The suspects were located in the Bower neighbourhood shortly after and taken into custody. Their age and gender were not released.

RCMP closed the detachment to the public as a safety precaution after the incident. The public entrance is usually open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Visitors to the station were redirected to the north satellite station on 67th Street.

More information was expected to be released later, said a police spokesman.
