File # 2023-37110

The Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP Detachment is looking for witnesses and information after several gun shots were fired at a residence this weekend.

On Friday Oct. 13, 2023, around 10:50 p.m., police attended an address on the 1000-block of Ricardo Road, confirmed evidence of gunfire, and located a vehicle that appeared to be doused in an accelerant.

Based on the investigation so far, the incident appears to be targeted toward one residence in particular, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP spokesperson. Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of the gunfire, which could have easily resulted in a more tragic outcome.

Police are requesting that anyone who witnessed the incident or anything suspicious which may have occurred earlier in the night, please contact the Tk’emlúps Rural RCMP Detachment as soon as possible.

If you have security or dash camera footage in the area, please have a look at it and see if it captured anything that may be relevant to the investigation, said Cpl. Evelyn.

Those with information are asked to please contact the rural detachment at 250-314-1800 and reference file 2023-37110.
