Vancouver police responded to the shooting at 11614 Northeast 49th St. around 3 p.m. and did not locate the suspects, though they received descriptions of their appearances and vehicle. Police say there were no injuries.
At 5:53 p.m., officers received a concerned report that the occupants of a suspicious vehicle had been wearing ski masks and holding rifles. The car had recently been reported stolen out of Portland.
