The Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen RCMP are currently investigating a shooting incident which occurred on Monday evening November 6th, at a Penticton social housing complex. Police are seeking public assistance in identifying the suspects. To date the investigators do not have information indicating that anyone was injured.

On Tuesday November 7, 2017 the Penticton RCMP were called to the Fairhaven House, located at 2670 Skaha Lake Rd, in response to a shooting incident that had occurred the day prior on Monday at approximately 5:00 pm.

To date investigators have confirmed that 3 individuals walked into the parking area of the single floor complex and approached the door to one of the units. Shots were fired in the direction of the unit and towards the parking lot area. To date it appears as though no one was hurt during the incident, and we are now seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects, stated Cpl Dan Moskaluk.

Investigators are looking to identify two individuals; one male described as wearing a light colored ski jacket, dark pants and shoes wearing a black ball cap and one female described as wearing a dark colored hooded jacket, light colored pants and shoes carrying a rectangle backpack. It is believed that a number of individuals would have witnessed this incident.

The Penticton RCMP are urging anyone with information who has not already spoken to investigators, to contact the Penticton RCMP General Investigation Section at 250-492-4300 or for those wishing to remain anonymous to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
