Neighbour Ivan Choo said the shooting sounded like firecrackers in the street.
"People don't expect it... it is crazy when you think about it, not much you can do though," he said.
"Nobody expects it, especially in your own neighbourhood."
Forensics crews are collecting evidence as police search for the vehicle involved.
Those who may have witnessed anything or have dashcam footage are asked to contact police.
