A 54-year-old Revelstoke resident is facing multiple charges after a drive-by shooting with a pellet gun on Monday afternoon.

Revelstoke RCMP say they responded to a call of a drive-by shooting in the 1700 block of Celgar Road in the Big Eddy on July 25 at 5:15 p.m.

RCMP say the man was driving a minivan when he shot out the back window of a parked vehicle with a pellet gun.

The vehicle owner’s husband took exception and caught the man and held him until police arrived and arrested him.

He is scheduled to appear in court in October to face charges of mischief under $5,000 and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace.

“Alcohol was a factor in this incident,” the Revelstoke RCMP wrote in a statement. “The investigation is continuing and police are not ruling out additional charges.”
