Quesnel RCMP seize guns after man allegedly shot at with hunting rifle

Nobody was injured in the incident, which occurred Wednesday morning on Lust Road

Police seized firearms and ammunition from a Quesnel home Wednesday after a man allegedly shot at another man.

On March 6 at approximately 9:45 a.m., a man reported to Quesnel RCMP that he had been shot at outside a home on Lust Road.

“The complainant advised police that when he had attended the home of one of his associates, he and a man inside the home had a disagreement over money owed,” according to a press release from the RCMP. “It is alleged the man inside the home produced a hunting rifle and shot at the complainant as he was exiting the home.”

Police arrived and contained the scene, and when they made contact with the suspect, he exited his home without issue, according to the release.

No one was injured in this incident.

A search warrant was executed at the residence, and police located and seized firearms and ammunition.

The suspect, a 45-year-old man whose name has not been released, was held in police custody pending further investigation. Police continue to work with the BC Prosecution Service to determine appropriate charges.
