Quesnel RCMP believe the Jan. 22 shooting on River Park Road was a targeted incident

The occupants of a Quesnel residence escaped injury after an early-morning shooting.

At approximately 5:34 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22, the Quesnel RCMP responded to reports of shots fired at a residence on River Park Road in the Two Mile Flat area. The police confirm several shots were fired, and the residence was struck by bullets.

The suspects departed the area in a vehicle prior to the officers arriving on scene, according to a press release from the RCMP.
