No injuries or arrests in North Okanagan shooting

RCMP report three days later as investigation continues

Police are investigating after shots were fired late Friday afternoon in Vernon.

Multiple front line police officers from the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP descended on the 4100 block of 24th Avenue in response to numerous reports of shots being fired Nov. 1 at approximately 4:30 p.m. Vehicles associated to this shooting fled the area prior to police arrival.
