A Kelowna man has been charged with attempted murder in connection to a shooting police are blaming on domestic violence.
A 29-year-old Kelowna woman was taken to hospital on March 21 suffering from a gunshot wound. Investigators descended on a home in the 100-block of Prior Road South, where the shooting is alleged to have occurred.
Darin Holden, 52, has now been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition. He is being held in custody until his next court appearance on April 1.
“This is believed to have been an act of interpersonal violence. This kind of violence is extremely traumatic, and should have no place in our community,” said Supt. Kara Triance, officer-in-charge of the Kelowna RCMP.
“Our Domestic Violence Unit is working with the injured individual to ensure she has ongoing support and services as this matter progresses through the court process.”
