Two men are in custody and facing several charges following an early morning shooting in Prince George.
At approximately 6 a.m. on Monday March 23, the Prince George RCMP received multiple 9-1-1 calls reporting possible shots fired in the area of Fox Drive, off Chief Lake Road in the northern part of Prince George.
While en route to the scene, General Duty officers located a suspect vehicle on Foothills Boulevard. When officers attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver failed to stop. A pursuit was engaged before two suspects abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot off Chief Lake Road. Both male suspects were apprehended. The men are both 27 years old and from Prince George.
A residence on Fox Drive appears to have damage consistent with bullet holes. Two adults and two children under the age of 12 were in the residence at the time of the shooting. No injuries were reported.
Although this investigation is in its early stages, all indications are that this was a targeted incident.
