This year, like every year, the Prince George RCMP responded to several reports of shots fired as a result of fireworks on Canada Day. In the early morning hours of Monday July 2nd, 2012, one of the reports turned out to be actual shots fired.
Just after midnight on July 2nd, General Duty officers attended the 3700 block of Dezell Drive in the City, where they located two gunshot holes in a residence and a shot gun lying in the street.
None of the occupants of the residence were injured.
Checks of the area were negative. The Prince George RCMP’s Police Dog Service and Forensic Identification Section attended the scene to assist.
The Prince George RCMP does not believe this was a random act or that members of the public are in danger. Persons in the residence are known to police.
