The Kelowna RCMP is asking for the public's assistance as the investigation into a shooting in a gym parking lot earlier this week continues.

Officers are looking to speak to eye witnesses, drivers with dash camera footage and Glenmore area residents with any video surveillance footage related to the brazen daytime shooting Monday afternoon March 29, according to the RCMP in a news release.

At approximately 12:35 p.m. a man was shot in the parking lot of Global Fitness and Racquet Centre on Harvey Avenue. He was treated at hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

A man who was spotted fleeing the scene has not been identified but drove a silver four-door sedan northbound on Burtch Road. 

At approximately 12:55 p.m., a witness reported a grey four-door Chevrolet Malibu was abandoned and burning on the shoulder of Longhill Road in the Glenmore area which investigators believe was connected to the incident, RCMP said.

“Kelowna RCMP is seeking public assistance for information related to the shooting or the suspect vehicle in order to advance the ongoing investigation,” says Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP, in a media release.

“In particular, we are looking to speak to anyone who was traveling in these areas, including the North Glenmore area between 12:35 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. on March 29.”

If you can provide assistance, contact the Kelowna RCMP Serious Crime Unit at 250-762-3300.
