It's been a year since Kelowna Mounties responded to gunfire complaints near Trumpeter Court and found a man, dead in the front seat of a vehicle.

The Kelowna RCMP Serious Crime Unit took charge of the investigation and determined it was a targeted shooting, but despite a thorough investigation, no arrests have been made at this time.

"In the hopes of advancing our investigation, we are identifying the deceased as 29-year-old Amanpreet Bal, who had recently moved to the Kelowna area from the Lower Mainland," Cpl Jocelyn Noseworthy, said in a press release.

"We believe this shooting was connected to ongoing criminal activity at that time, the details of which we are not releasing."
