No injuries or arrests in Vernon shooting

RCMP report three days later as investigation continues

Police are investigating after shots were fired late Friday afternoon in Vernon.

Multiple front line police officers from the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP descended on the 4100 block of 24th Avenue in response to numerous reports of shots being fired Nov. 1, at approximately 4:30 p.m.

Vehicles associated to this shooting fled the area prior to police arrival, RCMP media officer Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy said.

Police have not yet had any reports of injuries as a result of the shots fired complaint, however, the investigation continues as police follow up on leads in this matter.

“The actions of these individuals put local residents and innocent bystanders at great risk in the area,” Const. Noseworthy said. “We treat every investigation involving firearms extremely seriously and are asking anyone with information to come forward.”

Brad Albrecht, a neighbourhood resident, said he was out raking leaves when he heard the popping. He believed it was firecrackers. His truck was struck with a bullet.

The avenue was taped off by police Friday night and traffic was re-routed while officers continued their investigation. A metal detector was used in the investigation and two bullet casings were found in the street.

The alleged home targeted in the shooting is suspect, local residents said, noting many complaints about the home’s occupants have been made to RCMP.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to contact the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP, remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leaving a tip online at www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
