On Sunday, December 14, 2014 at 6:30 am, the Cranbrook RCMP responded to a report of shots fired in the neighbourhood of 16th Street South and 15th Avenue South. A residence and vehicle were shot several times. No one was injured during the incident.
Police do not believe this to be a random act of violence, but there is nothing to lead police to believe this was the intended residence. A grown male over six feet tall, wearing light coloured or red pants was seen leaving the scene in a dark coloured sedan.
The investigation is still ongoing and police request anyone who may have information relating to the shooting to call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Information can also be relayed via web or text based tips with details on Canadiancrimestoppers.org.
