PENTICTON - The man accused in a shooting incident near Penticton’s northeast boundary was released on bail today, July 17.

Matthew James Cameron, accused of one count of attempted murder in a shooting incident that took place Monday night, July 13, on Lindsay Road in Penticton, was delivered to court but did not make an appearance after bail conditions were reached between Crown and defence counsels.

Crown Prosecutor John Swanson says Cameron was released on a $25,000 bond secured by two individuals.

Cameron has a number of conditions to meet, including residing with his parents, a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, no weapons or illicit drugs possession and no contact with the complainant or a named Crown witness.
