A third suspect has been arrested in relation to an April 5 targeted shooting in Prince George.

The shooting occurred in the alley near the 2200 block of Quince Street between two groups of people known to each other.  During the altercation, bear spray was deployed, followed by what police now believe to be a single gunshot.

One of the four suspects, 31-year-old Kyle Devro Teegee, was arrested nearby and the lone victim was located in a dark coloured SUV a short time later.  The adult male victim was suffering from a single, not life-threatening gunshot wound and was transported to hospital for treatment.

Kenneth Munroe was subsequently identified as a suspect.

On Tuesday, at about 1:30 p.m., RCMP officers conducted a traffic stop of a pickup truck near the corner of Victoria Street and Strathcona Avenue.  Officers identified a disguised Kenneth Munroe as a passenger in the pickup. He was arrested without incident on his outstanding warrant issued as a result of the shooting.  Munroe was transported to the Detachment, where he was held in custody overnight.  He will appear in court later today.

The Prince George RCMP continue to search for the last remaining suspect, 38-year-old Eric Vern West. West is considered dangerous and should not be approached.

“Eric has to be tired of looking over his shoulder,” said Cpl. Craig Douglass, spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP.  “He has to be tired of not knowing who to trust and where he should hide next. He should do the right thing and turn himself in to police, because we will continue to actively search for him until he is arrested and taken to court.”

West is described as:

  • First Nations male
  • 180 cm (5’11”)
  • 82 kg (180 lbs)
  • Black hair
  • Brown eyes

Anyone that locates Eric Vern West is urged not to approach him and to call 9-1-1 immediately.
