Lake Country shooting leads to additional charge

A man charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting in Lake Country last month is facing another charge.

Kenneth Brian Ralston is now charged with breach of undertaking, alleged to have happened on Saturday, April 2, court records show.

Ralson, 59, was initially arrested on the attempted murder charge the night of March 3, after police say they found a person bleeding from an apparent gunshot wound to his right leg in a home in the 10,000-block of Highway 97 after receiving a call from another home in the area.

The victim, a 44-year-old man, was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. Police have said the victim and suspect lived together in the same house. They have not disclosed a motive for the shooting. Ralston was later released on $5,000 bail with a $2,500 deposit. He’s now scheduled to return to court April 18, where a judge will hear an application to revoke bail.
