What we know about the Kamloops man arrested in connection to a shooting downtown
January 04, 2018 - 6:30 PM
KAMLOOPS - The latest person to be arrested in connection to gunfire in Kamloops has a lengthy criminal history despite his young age.
Brandon Dale Fiddick, 25, is facing charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose in connection to a shooting over the weekend that left one man with a gunshot wound to his leg.
Fiddick was scheduled for a bail hearing in Kamloops Provincial Court this morning, Jan. 4, but his appearance has been adjourned until next week.
This isn’t Fiddick’s first time before the courts. According to court documents, Fiddick has appeared several times in Kamloops Provincial Court over the past four years.
Court documents show he’s been convicted of offences including assault, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, breaching probation and being unlawfully in a dwelling house.
In May 2017 he was ordered to stand trial on charges including assault with a weapon, mischief, and possession of a firearm contrary to an order. It’s not clear when his trial was held or what the results were.
Documents from his conviction on the charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking show he was placed on a 10-year firearm prohibition.
Kamloops RCMP said in a news release earlier this week the firearms incident at 110 Columbia Street on Saturday, Dec. 29, was drug-related.
The outstanding charges against Fiddick have not been proven in court.
