 The Prince Rupert RCMP attended a report of a shot fired inside an apartment building on Saturday night.

On January 29, 2022 at approximately 10:00pm, the Prince Rupert RCMP received a report of a shot fired inside an apartment building in the 800-block of 6th Ave E. Due to the high-risk nature of the call, police attended rapidly and set up containment around the building. The occupants of the surrounding units were evacuated and a safety plan was established to enter the unit where the shot originated.

No one was inside when police entered which means the unit was vacated prior to police arrival. The bullet shot was found to have gone through multiple walls into the next door unit which was occupied. Thankfully, no one was injured and support from Victim Services was provided on scene to address the traumatic event the residents went through.

"There is no indication that this was a targeted event, however, the investigation is ongoing and any information from the public can be helpful. We believe that there were 3 people present in the residence where the shot originated, 2 men and 1 woman, and we are looking to identify and speak to them." said Cst. LETNES of the Prince Rupert RCMP, lead investigator assigned to the file.

Anyone with information on this incident are asked to call the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-624-2136 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
