Shots fired suspects released without charges

Four suspects arrested Tuesday in a shots fired incident at Polson Park have been released from custody without charges being laid.

Police received a number of calls from witnesses at around 8 a.m. Tuesday about shots being fired in Polson Park.

A 23-year-old Vernon man was arrested near the park Tuesday morning while three other suspects – two men, one from Vernon, the other from Surrey, and a 28-year-old Toronto woman – were arrested shortly before noon Tuesday without incident in a car in Kelowna.

“Members of the serious crimes unit are continuing to interview witnesses, and collect evidence in relation to this case,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“The potential for charges being laid in the future against these individuals, or any others involved in this incident, will be reassessed in the days to come as they advance this investigation.”

Police said Tuesday that the four individuals were known to each other.

Nobody was injured in the incident.
