Shots fired in Vernon neighbourhood

Vernon RCMP are investigating a shots fired complaint early Tuesday.

Reports of shots being fired in the 3200 block of 22nd Street, on Vernon’s East Hill, came in at around 1 a.m.

“Police responded and their initial investigation determined there had been an altercation between two men who are known to each other,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“One of the men had already departed the scene and the second male was subsequently arrested for an outstanding warrant on an unrelated matter.”

Police are continuing their investigation, including efforts to locate the second male, and want to assure the public that this incident does not appear to be a random act.

The police are asking anyone who may have heard the shots being fired or an argument in the area to please contact them at 250 545-7171 or call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477.
