A Chase woman is facing one charge after a lengthy investigation into a shooting at a Kamloops motel.

Jennifer Lindsay Manuel, 38, is charged with possession of a restricted firearm in relation to a shooting at the Hospitality Inn on Columbia Street West.

On Oct. 16, 2020, Kamloops RCMP received several reports of gun shots near the Hospitality Inn, around 7:30 a.m.

Neighbours in the area awoke to four gunshots in quick succession on the October morning, which prompted a heavy police response and an order to place local schools on "hold and secure" notices.

At the time of the shooting, RCMP received reports that there were multiple people in the motel parking lot, but police were unable to locate a suspect when they arrived.

They did, however, locate one person with a gunshot wound. That person was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Manuel will face her first court appearance in Kamloops on Aug. 26, 2021, after the Targeted Enforcement Unit submitted charges to the B.C. Prosecution Service.
