RCMP are on scene of a shooting in Kelowna's Upper Mission

Investigating fatal shooting

UPDATE 12:45 p.m.

It was a quiet, sunny morning like any other in Kelowna's Kettle Valley neighbourhood Wednesday, save for the heavy police presence on Trumpeter Court.

Officers blocked off access to the dead-end residential street, as they investigated a fatal shooting that occurred overnight. 

Several residents in the neighbourhood said they were awoken by gunshots, just before midnight. Police said they found the body of a man inside a vehicle that was parked on the block. 

While police have yet to make any arrests, they believe the shooting was targeted. 

Wednesday morning, officers had set up a large black divider, hiding the SUV where the body was believed to be found in. The back end of the vehicle was visible though, and an 'N,' for novice drivers, was on the rear. 

Police have asked anyone with any information or surveillance footage from the area to contact the Kelowna RCMP Serious Crime Unit at 250-762-3300.

UPDATE 8:32 a.m.

Kelowna RCMP are on scene of what has now been confirmed as a shooting in the 300-block of Trumpeter Court in Kelowna's Upper Mission.
