KAMLOOPS – A fight outside of a dollar store in Kamloops last night took a nasty turn when one of the combatants fired pepper spray at the other.

Police say two men were fighting outside of the Landsdowne Street Dollarama yesterday, May 31 at 6 p.m when one shot pepper spray at the other. The two men fled after the incident and were gone before police arrived.

Police are trying to track down the two men who were involved in the fight. The suspects are described as a First Nations man with tattoos wearing camouflage pants and a Caucasian man wearing red shorts, according to an RCMP release.

A passerby in the area was treated by ambulance paramedics for pepper spray symptoms.

If you have any information about this incident, or are able to identify either of these men, please contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
