Shot fired in Kamloops; RCMP take four into custody

November 08, 2020 - 5:02 PM

A spike belt had to be used to apprehend suspects of a shots-fired complaint in Kamloops.

Rural RCMP received a report that a residence in the Knutsford area of Kamloops was shot at by an unknown person, Sgt Jeff Bingley said in a press release issued Nov.8.

"(The) complainant indicated he heard one shot and then saw a red Kia leave the area quickly," Bingley said.

The complainant was able to provide a license plate that was attached to a red Kia Soul that was reported stolen the previous day.

"The vehicle was spotted by police on Hugh Allen Drive and attempts were made to stop the vehicle but the driver refused to stop," he said.

"The vehicle was then spotted by RCMP on Hillside St North and again would not stop and continued onto Summit Drive northbound. Police deployed a spike belt at the bottom of Summit Drive and was able to deflate two tires. Based on the un-safe driving exhibited, Police discontinued following this vehicle."

Shortly thereafter the vehicle was located on the north side of the Red Bridge and the four occupants fled. Two occupants were promptly arrested and two others were taken into custody with the assistance of the police service dog.

Police continue their investigation.
