Gunshot fired in Masset

No one injured after single gunshot fired in Masset around 11 p.m. Wednesday

Police are investigating after someone shot a gun in Masset on Wednesday.

No one was injured by the single gunshot, which was fired around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Corporal Chris Kienzle of the Masset RCMP said the investigation is in its early stages, and no charges have been laid yet. But police have spoken with two persons of interest.

“We can’t confirm what it was related to,” Kienzle said. “What I can confirm is that it appears to be targeted, as both parties were known to police.”

Kienzle said it’s still too early to say exactly what charges may apply, but the shooter may face as many as eight to 10 firearms offences.

“We’re well staffed, and we have the expertise to investigate this — we’re well on our way,” Kienzle added.

“We’re just ensuring that the investigation goes properly, which is why there hasn’t been a charge laid at this point.”

Anyone with information about the gunshot is asked to phone Masset RCMP at 250-626-3991 or call BC Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
