On September 6th around 10:50pm, RCMP responded to a report of shots fired in the 1400 block on Terai Road.  A man was heard yelling, then a series of gunshots were fired which were followed by silence.  Numerous RCMP officers, including the Police Dog Services, investigated the scene, although a thorough search didn’t locate any suspects.

Both men were transported to Kelowna General Hospital in serious condition.  They are both from Kelowna, and neither has provided RCMP with details of the incidents.
