A West Kelowna man was injured in a shooting Mounties are saying was isolated and linked to the drug trade.

The West Kelowna RCMP responded  Dec. 2 at 12:35 p.m., to a report of a physical altercation involving a weapon where a man had been shot inside a home in the 3600 block of Granada Crescent.

“Police have determined that the incident was isolated, that the parties involved were well known to each other,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“The shooting victim who suffered serious, however believed to be non-life threatening, injuries was rushed from the scene by an associate to the BC Ambulance station in West Kelowna. He was then transported by emergency paramedics to hospital for treatment.”

Police have arrested two individuals, a 59-year-old man and a 33-year-old man both of West Kelowna, believed to be connected to the incident. Each face potential charges.

The ongoing police investigation has resulted in the execution of two warrants at the home related to the shooting incident.

Investigators have recovered evidence related to the initial shooting investigation, as well as uncovered evidence to suggest that the home was being used in the trafficking of illicit drugs including suspected cocaine and GHB.
