Its been a busy few days for members of the Dawson Creek RCMP. Over the last week, officers have responded to two shootings, an assault and a home invasion.
First, in the evening hours of November 6th, officers were called to a report of a shooting on 10th street and 107th Avenue.
They say a man was driving and felt he was being followed by another vehicle. He turned his vehicle around to confront the other driver who then allegedly fired multiple shots in his direction. The victim’s car was hit but he was not hurt. Police believe that this was a targeted incident and there is no risk to the public.
On the 7th at around 9:05 am, police received a call about an alleged assault. They arrived on scene to find a man on Landry Road in the Rolla subdivision with serious injuries. Police believe that man was also targetted and that there is no risk to the public.
Then on the 8th around 8:34 am, police were called to a unit at the Hillcrest Motel in Pouce Coupe, BC for a home invasion. When they arrived on scene they say the victim had been assaulted and the suspect had stolen a black Dodge dually pickup. The truck was found abandoned a day later Road 201 off of Hwy 49 near the Alberta border.
During this time, police were also able to charge two men with attempted murder stemming from a shooting on November 2nd. In that case, police found a 30-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at the intersection of the Alaska Highway and 17th Street. Both men remain in custody and are set to appear in court on Tuesday.
Anyone with information on any of these crimes is asked to call Dawson Creek RCMP at 1-250-784-3700 or CrimeStoppers.
