Shooting Thursday night

On Dec. 22 at about 10:41 p.m., the Williams Lake RCMP were called to a reported shooting.

A man in his 30s remains in hospital after being shot in Williams Lake last week.

On Dec. 22, Williams Lake RCMP responded to a call of a reported shooting at 10:41 p.m. at a residence in the 4000 block of Mackenzie Avenue North.

When they arrived, they discovered a male suffering from a gun shot wound and two other males suffering from minor blunt force injuries.

“The man who was shot was airlifted to Vancouver and later transported to Kamloops, but his injuries are not life threatening,” said Sgt. Richard Lebeuf of the Williams Lake detachment, adding the other men were treated in Cariboo Memorial Hospital and later released.

Lebeuf said the incident is under investigation and the RCMP are trying to determine the motive behind the shooting.

“There’s definitely a motive — this wasn’t a random act. The public need not worry that somebody is going to come bursting through their door and cause issues. These people are known to each other, we just don’t know at what point,” Lebeuf explained.

So far no one has been identified, no arrests have been made and anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the RCMP.
