Mounties seek pair of armed men
Kamloops Mounties are looking for two men involved in an armed confrontation on Sunday, Feb. 10, at about 11:20 a.m.
A group of people sitting on the deck of a rooming house in the 400-block of St. Paul Street in downtown Kamloops were confronted by two men armed with a shotgun and hand gun. The two demanded to know where a specific person was and, after asking questions, left the area.
One of the people on the deck went to the Henry Leland House nearby to ask counter staff to call police.
Police are looking for a medium-built white man between the ages of 25 and 30 with dark hair and a pock-marked face. He was wearing a blue hoodie, a black hat and sunglasses. He had a camouflage tactical belt around his waist, loaded with ammunition.
The second person is described as a native man with light-coloured skin between the ages of 30 and 40. He is taller than the other suspect and wore his long black hair in a ponytail. He was wearing a grey hoodie, camouflage pants and boots.
The major-crime unit is helping with the investigation.
