Kelowna house suffers gunshot wound, people fine

Mounties are following up an unusual report of a gunshot being fired into a Kelowna home this weekend, although they don't believe it to be cause for widespread concern.

"The Kelowna RCMP were called to a residence on the 700 block of Raymer Avenue for a single gunshot, March 4 at 9:50 p.m.," said Const. Kris Clark.

"A tenant in the house said that the shot had come from one of the rooms upstairs. Police were able to determine that no one had been injured as the slug had gone through the floor and lodged in the basement ceiling. No firearm was located and information from the tenants was not forthcoming."

Clark said that police believed it was probably a handgun that had been fired, although ballistics had yet to come back with detailed information.

Some of the six residents in the home, which Clark described as somewhat of a rooming house, are known to police for their alleged association to drugs.
