“To further intimidate the public one of the offenders discharged their firearm and then together with their accomplice fled the scene." 

The spokesperson says the firearm that was discharged is reportedly a slug gun.

There were no reports of any injuries, and two people have been taken into custody.

“Police conducted enquiries and located the offenders at a nearby address."
