Police seeking witnesses after shooting, truck burning in Aberdeen

Police did not find anyone injured from the shooting, but did find a burning black Dodge Ram nearby early Saturday morning

Police are investigating after an early morning shooting on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Around 2:35 a.m., Kamloops RCMP officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1300-block of Hugh Allan Drive. Police confirmed shots were fired, but found no one present was injured.

Shortly after, at 2:50 a.m., the suspect vehicle, a black Dodge Ram, was found on fire nearby in the 2000-block of Tremerton Drive. That vehicle had been reported stolen from a Balfour Court residence 20 minutes prior.

"Police, including frontline officers, members of the police dog service unit, the Kamloops RCMP forensic identification services unit, and the general investigations support team, are all involved in the investigation, which remains in its early stages," said Cpl. Crystal Evelyn in a statement released to media.

Two suspects connected to the shooting were described as men, with one dressed in a black top, dark pants and white shoes with orange on the back. The other was described as wearing a black top, blue jeans and black shoes with orange on the bottom.

Police are calling for any potential witnesses to review dash cam or security camera footage, asking that anyone with information on the incident contact the Kamloops RCMP detachment at 250-828-3000 and cite file number 2023-33666.
