The investigation is continuing following a reported shooting Tuesday afternoon.

At about 1:50 p.m. the Prince George RCMP received a report of shots fired near a residence located on the 2800 block of Highway 97 near Bellamy Road.

Initial indications were that a man shot at a woman when she attended the residence. The two are known to each other.

Multiple officers including a police dog service team attended the area. Within a few minutes, officers located and arrested a 48-year-old man believed to be responsible for the shots. The residence was cleared for officer and public safety.

A portion of Highway 97 was closed for approximately 15 minutes as a precaution in order to help ensure the safety of the public, as the residence is next to the highway.
