Kamloops Mountie seek information on Saturday shooting, vehicle fire

The Kamloops RCMP are asking for witnesses or video footage of a shooting that happened early Saturday morning.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired on the 1300-block of Hugh Allan Drive shortly after 2:30 am on Saturday.

When officers arrived, they confirmed that gunshots had been fired, but there was no one present.

A suspect vehicle, a black Dodge Ram, was found on fire about 20 minutes later on the 2000 block of Tremerton Drive, about 2.5 km east.

The truck had been reported as stolen from a residence on Belfour Court around 2:30 am.
