KAMLOOPS - Police in Kamloops are asking the public to come forward if they witnessed anything leading up to the G & M Trailer Park shooting last week.

Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in a news release the detachment has set up a designated email address for information relating to the incidents that led up to 35-year-old Shane William Caron allegedly barricading himself in a home.

Shelkie says if you haven't yet spoken to a police officer and you observed anything relating to the vehicle pursuit or gunfire exchange between police and the suspect, you're asked to email Kamloops_RCMP_tips@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

If you have any relevant video or pictures of either the gunfire or pursuit, you're asked to email them along with your contact information to Kamloops RCMP.

Caron was out on bail when he was arrested and charged with several counts including four charges of attempted murder in relation to shooting at Kamloops RCMP officers on Oct. 27.

The vehicle pursuit and gunfire exchanges led to a tense, hours-long standoff in the G & M Trailer Park off of the Yellowhead Highway. The highway was shut down for most of the standoff, which didn't come to a resolution until early Oct. 28.

Caron is in custody and is expected to appear in court on Nov. 6.
