RCMP hunting for shooting suspectPosted: July 19, 2012
The Elk Valley RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance with an investigation involving the careless and potentially deadly use of a firearm.
During the evening of Thursday, July 12, at approximately 10:14 p.m., Elk Valley RCMP responded to a report of shots fired in the Elkford area. RCMP officers attended to a motel located on Chauncey Street, where officers confirmed that one shot had been discharged from a high powered rifle.
An examination of the scene confirmed that a single bullet had penetrated through the exterior wall of one of the motel rooms, through three interior walls and came to rest in the bathtub inside the suite. The room that was struck was occupied at the time and it is by chance alone that no one was struck by the bullet which could have seriously injured or killed someone.
Investigators believe that the person(s) responsible fled the area in a vehicle, possibly in the direction of the Green Hills Mine.
“This was an extremely reckless act that was carried out with absolutely no regard for public safety. We are certain that this incident is as great of a concern for the citizens of Elkford, as it is for the RCMP and we are asking for assistance in identifying those who are responsible,” stated Sgt. Dave Dubnyk of the Elk Valley RCMP.
The police are confident there is someone who has information with regard to this incident and would urge anyone with information to please contact your local RCMP Detachment. If a person wishes to remain anonymous they can forward their information through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
