March 30, 2020 - 9:25 AM

A Kelowna senior is facing charges following a report to RCMP about shots fired this past weekend.

Mounties received a report at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 28, of a firearm being pointed at a man in at a residence in the 700 block of Cadder Avenue in Kelowna. Later they learned the gun was fired inside the residence.

“There is no evidence to suggest that the firearm was discharged at anyone,” Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP said in a press release. “Regardless, it is extremely fortunate no one was injured as a result of this dangerous situation.”

Kelowna RCMP contained the area and safely brought all the occupants out of the residence. A 70-year-old man was identified as the suspect and arrested without incident.

Officers located and seized a rifle from inside the residence.

The suspect was released on conditions for a future court date. The matter has been referred to the BC Prosecution Service for charge approval.
