Stray bullet punctures Kelowna home

A Kelowna townhouse complex on the 1300 block of Findlay Road was pierced with a stray bulletĀ  Wednesday morning, prompting a call to police.

Once on the scene, police confirmedĀ  the hole was in fact from a bullet. Further investigation revealed that another unit in the complex had also been hit, said Const. Kris Clark.

"Although the shots are believed to be linked, the tenants are not, and the shots appear to have gone astray," said says Sgt. Derek Williams of the Kelowna General Investigation Section.

"The townhouse complex is full of families with children, and it was fortunate that no one was hurt."

Police believe this to be an isolated incident and that the residences were not targeted. The Kelowna General Investigation Section continues to investigate.
