VERNON - Mounties investigated reports of gunfire in the 3200 block of 22 Street in Vernon during the wee morning hours Tuesday.

At about 1 a.m. police were told of two men arguing and shots fired. The men knew each other, RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk said in a press release. Before officers arrived, one left and the second was arrested on an outstanding warrant issued for a different matter. 

RCMP continue to investigate and are searching for the second man. The incident wasn't random. 

Anyone with information, who may have heard shots fired or heard an argument in the area can contact North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
