Mounties Investigate Targeted Shooting
Prince George, B.C. – Police are asking for the public’s help with their investigation into a targeted shooting in Prince George last night.
RCMP Corporal Craig Douglass says police responded to a report of shots fired at around 5:40 p.m. at a residence on the 700 block of Freeman Street.
Once police arrived, he says three people left the home without incident and were detained as part of the investigation. No other people were found and it appears no one was injured though one bullet broke a neighbour’s window and narrowly missed the people inside.
As a result of the shooting, the RCMP’s Major Crime Section, Forensic Identification Section and Police Dog Service were called in to assist with the investigation.
Douglass says it appears it was a targeted shooting and those responsible fled prior to police arrival.
He says at this time police have no reason to believe that the public is at any further risk.
