Police searching for man following shooting that injured one, killed dog

 

One man has been arrested and police are seeking a second man following a shooting that left one man injured and a dog dead last weekend.

Police believe that two men exchanged gunfire outside the residence on the 2000 block of Tamarack Street.  One of the persons is believed to be the man originally thought to be a victim of the shooting.

On October 24, police located and arrested 20-year-old Michael Campbell-Alexander without incident.  He has now been charged with attempted murder, unlawfully killing an animal, unlawfully possessing a prohibited firearm, careless use of a firearm, and discharging a piston with intent.

Campbell-Alexander appeared in provincial court yesterday and was held in custody at least until his next court appearance, scheduled for November 1.

Police are also seeking, 31, believed to be the other person involved in the shooting.  Lornsten  has been charged by Crown counsel and an arrest warrant has been issued  discharging a firearm with intent, possession of a firearm while prohibited, mischief under $5,000, failing to comply with probation, and failing to comply with an undertaking.

Lornsten is a resident of Prince George, but is from Quesnel and may have returned to that community.

He is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • 175 cm
  • 77 kg
  • Hazel eyes
  • Short brown hair

Lornsten has a number of tattoos including by each eye, on his neck and on each forearm.

Lornsten should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.  If you see Lornsten, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Investigators still believe this was a targeted attack as a result of a personal disagreement between persons known to each other.  There is no evidence to support that this incident was related to the drug trade.
