WILLIAMS LAKE, BC: The Williams Lake RCMP continue to investigate an early morning shooting that occurred just after 4 AM today…
Police say shots were fired at a residence in the 900 block of Western Ave in Williams Lake. Officers attended and determined that an unknown suspect(s) had fired several shots at a residence formerly occupied by a local gang member. That gang member no longer lived at the address and fortunately, the family who just moved in was not hurt.
Shortly after officers arrived, another shot was heard from an unknown direction which resulted in heightened vigilance by the officers.
As a precaution measure, the Williams Lake RCMP notified the local School District, University, and area residents of the situation and recommended that everyone stay away from the area.
Police seized a firearm and currently have one person in custody connected to this incident.
Although the residence in question is still being secured, the School District, Local University, and residents have been notified that they can continue with their daily activities. The local School District has closed all schools today.
