Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies are investigating a shooting that occurred at the Riverpark Apartments in Canyon Country around 9 p.m. Tuesday. 

Shortly after 9 p.m., deputies were called to the 27300 block of Evi Lane for reports of gunshots being heard, according to Shirley Miller, a spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station. 

“Preliminary information indicates that two family members got into (an) argument, and there was a disturbance where a firearm was discharged,” Miller said. “Detectives thought it was the family member.”

Reports indicate that the suspect shot at an uninhabited dwelling, shattering a window. No one was injured as a result of the incident, nor were Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel called to the scene, according to fire and sheriff’s officials. 

SCV Sheriff’s Station’s Career Offender — Burglary, Robbery, Assault (COBRA) team detectives are handling the investigation, and are expected to continue talking to witnesses and residents on Evi Lane Wednesday, according to Miller. 

As of 3 p.m. Wednesday, no suspect was in custody and the investigation remained ongoing.
