Shots fired in Salmo

A 43-year-old Salmo woman is facing potential criminal charges after she allegedly fired shots in a Salmo home early Friday morning.

Around 3:50 a.m., Salmo RCMP received a report of a situation unfolding in the 1800-block of Airport Road in Salmo. Initially, police were told a woman had entered the property and allegedly discharged a firearm at the home.

Four adults were inside that home at the time of the shooting, all were reportedly uninjured. One person sprayed bear spray at the suspect, who fled the area.

"The police investigation led officers to the location of the suspect at another nearby property where she was taken into custody without further incident," says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the BC RCMP in the Southeast District.

"RCMP believe the incident was isolated in nature, and therefore do not believe there is any further risk to the general public."

The investigation is ongoing and will be supported by forensic specialists. The suspect, a 43-year-old Salmo woman now faces potential criminal charges. She remains in custody at this time.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact the Salmo RCMP at 250-357-2212.
