Scene of gunfire

Alanna Kelly

UPDATE: 1 p.m.

Just one officer remains at a home where a shot was fired on Sutherland Avenue Monday evening.

The incident occurred about 8:30 when two men apparently entered the basement suite and got into an altercation with two other individuals inside.

Numerous police officers responded to the scene.

Jessalyn Broadfoot, a resident in the area, told Castanet News she saw one officer holding a big assault rifle during the ordeal.

"There were people sitting in a red car, apparently it was an undercover cop," she said.

"It's a lovely street to live on," Broadfoot added, "but we see a lot of things on this street just based on the location being close to downtown."

Another neighbour said she called police on a number of occasions because there were arguments multiple times at the home.


ORIGINAL STORY: 9 a.m.

Kelowna RCMP remain at a Sutherland Avenue home this morning after shots were fired inside Monday evening.

Police were called to the home on the 700 block of Sutherland Avenue about 8:30 p.m. after shots were fired inside the basement suite of the home.

Investigators were told an altercation broke out after two men entered the home.

One man was transported to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, believed to have occurred during the altercation.

“The incident is believed to be targeted, therefore the public is not at risk,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

Four people were detained at the scene.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net.
