A 20-year-old man is recovering after being shot early Sunday morning.
The shooting occurred at about 3 a.m. in the 2000 block of Tamarack Street. Police responded to several calls and when they arrived found a dead dog in the driveway and evidence of gun shots was located both inside and outside a residence on that block. People inside the home appeared to be unharmed, but were uncooperative. The person or persons responsible for the shooting had fled the scene before police were called and were not located.
At approximately 4:20 a.m., the Prince George RCMP assisted paramedics with a call to a residence on Cuddie Crescent where the caller had suffered injuries consistent with being shot. The 20-year-old man was transported to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Investigators believe the man was a victim of the shooting on Tamarack Street.
Search warrants were executed on both residences.
Through investigation, officers believe this was a targeted attack as a result of a personal disagreement between people known to each other. There is no evidence to support that this incident was related to the drug trade.
