Can you identify suspected BB gun shooter?

Kamloops Mounties were called to the 200-block of Tranquille Road at 8:40 a.m. on March 25 after a man in a car was reported as having shot a BB gun at a person. Surveillance footage showed a brief confrontation between the driver of the car and the suspected target prior to the shots being fired.

Police in Kamloops are looking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of using a BB gun to shoot at a person in North Kamloops late last month.

The pellets did not hit the human target, Const. Crystal Evelyn said, but they did damage the glass doors of a business.
