Police have identified a suspect in a shooting on a beach prior to the Canada Day fireworks display on Osoyoos Lake.

RCMP are asking for the public’s help to find Steven Marlo Gallagher, 29, who is considered armed and dangerous, according to a media release issued today, July 6.

Officers were called to a shooting on the east side of Osoyoos Lake in the White Sands area on Osoyoos Indian Band land at around 6:52 a.m. July 1, RCMP said.

A 22-year-old man from Maple Ridge was getting ready to watch the Canada Day fireworks with friends when a man from another group started a fight, pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, hitting the victim.

The suspect took off before police arrived.

The Maple Ridge man’s injuries were considered non-life-threatening.

Investigators are working to determine if the Canada Day shooting is linked to two other shootings in Penticton, one on June 26 and the other on June 28.

“If Steven sees or hears this, we ask him to contact the police immediately,” says RCMP Sgt. Jason Bayda said in the release.

Gallagher is being considered armed and dangerous. Should you encounter Gallagher, or have information regarding his whereabouts, do not approach him and immediately call 9-1-1.
