A street in Chilliwack has been cordoned off by police tape early Sunday morning, following what may have been a gunshot.

Williams Street at Reece Avenue is closed off, and there was a heavy police presence from about 4 a.m. Witnesses close by say there is a team from the IHIT unit heading to the scene, but most of the officers who were originally on scene have left for now.

The street remains closed, from the corner of Reece Avenue up to the church on Williams.

A resident in the area says there was a gunshot early this morning, followed by a car speeding off.
