It is alleged the occupants of a small dark coloured vehicle drove by this residence and fired several bullets into the home.

“Luckily no one inside the home or in the neighbouring homes were injured” sSergeant Chris Riddle of the Quesnel RCMP Detachment, said.

“We take this type of criminal act very seriously and have dedicated all available resources to investigate this disturbing incident. We hope that anyone with information about this crime will do the right thing and come forward to help us solve this case.”
