Kamloops Mounties have blocked an intersection in North Kamloops after receiving reports of possible gunshots in the area.

As of 7:19 p.m., police had the three-way stop intersection of Willow Street, Cottonwood Avenue and Renfrew Lane closed to traffic. The intersection is right behind Library Square.

The area was taped off and there were about five police officers focused on an area near a white house at the southwest corner of the intersection. Police could be seen searching the ground in front of the hosue with flashlights and taking photos of the scene.

A youth in the area told KTW he was walking at about 5 p.m. to his sister’s residence on nearby Sherwood Drive and, when he arrived, was asked by his sister’s boyfriend if he had heard gunshots.

KTW has a call in to the RCMP detachment and is awaiting more information.
