Two injured in shooting on Johnson Street

Two people are recovering from gunshot wounds following an incident in the backyard of a residence in the 700-block of Johnson Street Thursday.

Just after 1:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 7, Prince George RCMP responded to a report of shots fired at the location.

When police officers arrived at the location, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds. The injured persons were taken to the hospital where they are being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The two victims are known to police, and investigators believe this to be a targeted attack, with no increased risk to the general public.

“Police officers are currently looking to obtain any video surveillance or dash camera footage from the area, or to speak with anyone who might have seen people or vehicles traveling through the neighbourhood between 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. this morning,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

If anyone has information relating to this investigation, they can contact a police officer by contacting the Prince George RCMP non-emergency line at 250-561-3300. Please quote file number 2023-42668.

The file remains under investigation.
