Bystander shot through wall

Kamloops RCMP say the victim of a shooting in an apartment building Saturday was an innocent bystander.

Police were initially called to an apartment building on Holt Street at 10:15 a.m. Saturday by a 24-year-old man who said he had been shot.

“Investigation has revealed that, in a neighbouring apartment to where the victim lives, two males were involved in a violent altercation where one of the males was allegedly holding a firearm carelessly when it discharged,” Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said in a news release.

“The bullet went through the wall and into the next apartment where it struck the victim.”

Police are still in the process of speaking to witnesses. The name of the suspect who fired the gun will be released once charges are laid.

The victim was treated in hospital and released.
