KAMLOOPS — Charges have been laid against the man accused in Friday's shootout on the Tkumlups Indian Reserve.

35-year-old Shane William Caron has been charged with eight separate offences including four counts of attempted murder for shooting at RCMP members, use of a firearm while committing assault, possession of a firearm without a license and unlawfully occupying a vehicle with a firearm.

The charges are in addition to the charges Caron was previously facing which are also currently before the courts.

RCMP have finished combing the scene at the G & M Trailer Park.

They say further charges are likely as the investigation continues.

Caron remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Kamloops Provincial Court Monday.
