Cyclist shooter hunted

Police are still searching for the person who shot a cyclist this past weekend near Spences Bridge.

The 59-year-old victim from Burnaby was shot along Highway 1 early Sunday morning, while competing in the Cache Creek 600 cycling event.

He was a few kilometres south of the town when he was shot once, by someone who fled in scene in what is believed to be a pickup truck.

The victim suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries and was discovered shortly after by other cyclists participating in the event.

He was taken to a local hospital and has since been released.

Lytton RCMP are now asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a possible suspect in this seemingly random shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lytton RCMP at 250-455-2225 or  you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
