Shots fired at police on Anaham reserve

The RCMP are looking for information after shots were fired at officers on the Anaham Reserve early Sunday.

At around 1 a.m. an Alexis Creek RCMP officer was at Anaham conducting curfew checks when the officer witnessed two men allegedly attempting to start a stolen pickup truck.

"Upon approach, the passenger fled, but the driver was taken into custody," the RCMP said. "While the officer was dealing with the man in custody, two other men, one of them armed with a knife approached the arresting officer and threatened him."

Other officers were immediately called to assist and the suspects who threatened the officer, fled on foot.

Additional officers attended the scene and initiated a search for the suspects who allegedly threatened the arresting officer.

During the search, several shots were fired at police at two different time intervals.

The RCMP said Sunday additional resources have been called in to assist in moving this investigation forward.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to please contact the detachment at 250-394-4211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 ( TIPS).
