No one was injured in a drive-by shooting late Thursday night that left a bullet hole in a parked car.
Police were called to an area on Chestnut Avenue just before 11:30 p.m. for a report of a gunshot. Investigators arrived to find a car parked in a residential driveway that had been struck by a bullet.
A home security surveillance video showed a small white SUV, possibly a late-1990s Chervrolet Blazer, drive by at the time the shot was fired.
"Unfortunately, Kamloops RCMP respond to gunfire or firearms incidents on a regular basis," RCMP Staff Sgt. Simon Pillay said.
"These are obviously treated as very high risk, emergency situations. In this case, an errant bullet could easily have killed an innocent person in their home. This type of reckless firearm usage presents a major public safety risk and, as such, are treated as priority investigations."
Pillay said police have not yet identified suspects. Mounties released a still shot from the surveillance video showing a blurry light-coloured SUV driving down a residential street.
"Although the picture is not clear, someone may recognize this vehicle," Pillay said.
"Whoever fired that shot has demonstrated they don't care if or who they may kill. If you have information, please call us and help make our community safer."
Pillay said it is not clear at this point it is not clear if the shooting was related to organized crime.
Anyone with information can call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
