Saskatoon's police chief says it appears last week's shooting at a Saskatoon home was not a random act.
The shooting killed 34-year-old Lorry Santos, a wife and mother of four. Shots were fired into her Westview home last Wednesday morning.
Police Chief Clive Weighill says it appears the Santos home was deliberately targeted.
However, he says the police service is not sure if the shooting was aimed at someone in the home - or if the shooter got the wrong house.
“It certainly is a case of concern for us,” Weighill told reporters. “But at this time it does not appear to be a random act, as I say, the perpetrators went to this house for a reason – we just have to try to get to what that was.”
Friends of Santos say the stay at home mother had absolutely no links to any sort of crime.
Her four children range from five months to 16.
Affinity Credit Union has announced it is accepting donations for the Santos family at any of its 44 branches.
