PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Mounties have one suspect in custody following a targeted shooting early last Friday night (June 10) in the 700 block of Freeman Street in Prince George.
Cpl. Craig Douglass says the investigation is ongoing. “The Prince George RCMP now believe that multiple persons with firearms made their way to this residence on Freeman street at which time there was an exchange of gunfire between them and one or more persons in this residence.” he said. “One of those persons, a 25 year old Prince George male is in custody.”
The suspect appeared in court Monday on a number of drug and weapons charges. Although there are no injuries from the incident, at least one bullet found its way into a nearby home, narrowly missing the occupants, two adults and two children.
Three people in the targeted residence escaped the incident unharmed and are detained as part of the investigation. Police obtained a search warrant for the home locating a quantity of illicit drugs, cash, and evidence of drug trafficking.
The area is continuing to be monitored, but Douglass says the area still may be at risk. “Because of the fact that persons responsible or some of the persons responsible are not in custody, we cannot conclusively say that there won’t be further incidences,” Douglass said. “We are asking anyone with information to provide that to the police so we can prevent those types of incidents from happening.”
If you have any information, you’re asked the call the Prince George RCMP at (250) 561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
