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.
Evelyn said police 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.
The suspected shooter is white and was driving a green Audi with B.C. licence plate number LR3 58P.
“We are releasing the driver’s image, as well as the description and licence plate of the vehicle, with hope that information will be provided by the public to help further the police investigation,” Evelyn said.
Police are also trying to reach the man who was the intended target. Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-9184.
