File # 2024-4844

Police officers are currently on the 800-block of Victoria Street as they investigate Prince George’s second homicide of 2024. Investigators received a report of shots fired at that location shortly after 11:00 p.m. on February 13. When police officers arrived, they located the single male victim deceased from his injuries.

The increase in gun violence in Prince George, along with the recent theft of firearms from a gas station, is concerning and our police officers are working tirelessly to apprehend those who are responsible for these crimes, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

Investigators are looking for any dash camera, cell phone or video surveillance footage from the area between the hours of 10:45 p.m. and 11:35 p.m., or to speak with anyone who witnessed the incident and has not already spoken with police. Please contact the Prince George RCMP non-emergency line at 250-561-3300 with any information.

This was a targeted event and there is no increased risk to the general public. The investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information about this or any other criminal offence, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477 or online at www.northernbccrimestoppers.ca (English only). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest or recovery of stolen property, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
