Police say Rutland home hit by bullets was targeted

Home on Schell Court was fired on on March 7.

Police now say the shooting of a Rutland home at the beginning of the week was a “targeted” crime.

“Police can confirm that it was a targeted shooting and there is no reason for public concern,” said Sgt. Ann Morrison.

Around 9 p.m. on Monday, March 7, police were summoned to the 1100-block of Schell Court after gunfire was aimed at the upper floor of the suited home.

The shots appear to have been aimed at the same window, which initially led police to suspect the shooting was not a random act.

No one was injured in the shooting and RCMP said Friday that they are continuing to conduct neighborhood inquiries and work with the occupants of the home to gather more details about the shooting.

Investigators still have little information to go on and are asking anyone with information to call Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
