RCMP are investigating after the storefront of Wicked Electric on Main Street in Penticton was shot multiple times on Sunday night.
The downtown Penticton business had one of its front windows and its front door broken by the shots, with 13 police labels stuck next to holes in the window.
“We are very concerned about this type of criminal activity in our downtown core, and have engaged several investigative sections,” said Const. James Grandy. “Even though this incident occurred in a public space, we believe this incident was targeted, and don’t believe there is an increased risk to the public.”
Officers responded to reports of a shooting at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 19. The store was closed at the time.
Investigators are asking that any witnesses or that anyone with surveillance cameras or dash cams to check for suspicious persons or vehicles in the downtown core during this time to contact the Penticton RCMP, quoting file 2021-20909.
