KELOWNA – Police are asking from the public's help as they continue to investigate a home invasion and shooting that happened in Lake Country in October of 2015.

Two suspects forcibly entered a home in the 1000 block of Tyndall Road and assaulted the residents.

Police at the time of the home invasion said Victoria Konecsni was tied up, but not injured, while her husband, Bruce Konecsni, was shot in the buttocks. Once the suspects got away, Victoria was able to free herself and call police.

The couple, who are in their early 60s, bought the home in 1994 and have had no trouble with the law.

According to a media release from Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, the Southeast District General Investigation Unit is still investigating the crime and is asking for help from the public.

“We believe that there is someone in the community who may have the missing piece to help solve this investigation,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release. “What seems inconsequential to you, may in fact be a very important piece.”

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at www.crimestoppers.net or text to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
