"One male suffered superficial wounds that did not require medical attention," Richmond RCMP Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said in a written statement.

Early reports suggested the gunshots were directed at a luxury SUV in the parking lot, but that has not been confirmed by the Richmond RCMP.

Richmond RCMP said its serious crimes unit is involved in the investigation.
