No shooting suspect found after high-risk takedown near Kamloops

May 10, 2021 - 3:42 PM

RCMP engaged in what was described as a high-risk takedown today following a shooting in Chase.

Officers from the Chase detachment responded to reports of shots fired on Fairview Road in Anglemont at around 6:45 a.m. today, May 10, where they found a man with gunshot wounds, according to an RCMP media release. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

At 9:40 a.m., near Pritchard, police spotted a car similar to one that sped away from the Chase shooting area.

“A high-risk takedown occurred on Highway 1 near Vicars Road shortly after,” a Kamloops RCMP news release reads. “Upon further investigation, it was determined the vehicle and its occupants were not associated to the incident and all were released at the scene.”

The suspect and victim in the shooting are known to each other and the public is not believed to be at risk, RCMP said.

Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to contact Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 and reference file 2021-1122.
