Mounties have now charged a 52-year-old Kelowna man with attempted murder in connection to a March 21 shooting of what appears to be his partner.

The incident was brought to RCMP attention March 21, when a 29-year-old woman was brought to the Kelowna General Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound.

An investigation led to a residence in the 100 block of Prior Road South in Kelowna, where the incident is alleged to have taken place.

“This is believed to have been an act of interpersonal violence. This kind of violence is extremely traumatic and should have no place in our community,” Supt. Kara Triance, officer-In-charge of the Kelowna RCMP said in a press release.

“Our Domestic Violence Unit is working with the injured individual to ensure she has ongoing support and services as this matter progresses through the court process.”

As a result of the investigation, 52-year-old Kelowna resident Darin Holden was arrested and has now been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition. He has been remanded into custody until his next court appearance on April 1.
