Police said shots were fired at a home at the three-way stop intersection of Willow Street, Cottonwood Avenue and Renfrew Lane at about 5:15 p.m. on Oct. 1. According to Mounties, Tremblay was arrested about 12 hours later in Dallas.

No one was injured in the shooting, though there were people in the house at the time.

Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Simon Pillay called the incident “a broad daylight, brazen drive-by shooting in a residential neighbourhood.”

Following a brief appearance on Monday (Oct. 5), Tremblay is slated to return to Kamloops provincial court on Oct. 19 for a bail hearing.
