Fatal Shooting at Ospika and Forest – Update
Prince George, B.C. – There was a fatal shooting in Prince George last night.
Prince George RCMP Corporal Craig Douglass confirms it happened at 11:20 p.m. in the driveway of a home at the corner of Ospika Boulevard and Forest Avenue.
He says the victim was a 30-year-old male and says the RCMP’s Major Crime Section has been called in to lead the investigation with the assistance of the Forensic Identification Section and Police Dog Service.
There are no suspects in custody though police believe the shooting was targeted with links to the drug trade.
Investigators are asking anyone with private or commercial exterior video surveillance of the area, to contact the Prince George Detachment.
This follows a targeted shooting on Freeman Street last Friday night.
No one was killed in that incident though a stray bullet narrowly missed a neighbouring family.
Douglass says it’s too soon to know whether or not the shootings were related.
