Two people were shot yesterday in what appears to be a targeted attack in Kamloops.

On Feb. 15, just before 4 p.m., Kamloops RCMP were called to a residence in the 1900 block of Tranquille Road for shots fired. When officers arrived they found that a man and woman had been shot. The area was immediately secured by police and the injured people were transported to the local hospital, according to an RCMP news release.

Police believe it was not a random incident, but a targeted shooting.
