Okanagan Falls residents report overnight shooting – Penticton News

Shooting at OK Falls

There was a heavy police presence in Okanagan Falls on Saturday night after gunfire reportedly rang out in the small community.

Several area residents told Castanet that shots were fired near the corner of Maple Street and 10th Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday night.

It’s unclear if anyone was injured in the reported shooting, but police quickly swarmed the area. A resident said officers blocked Eastside Road at one point Saturday night and wouldn’t let vehicles head south to Okanagan Falls.

Castanet has contacted the RCMP for more information on the shooting, as it is not known at this time whether the RCMP have made any arrests.

“Everyone is wondering what’s going on, I don’t know if they caught a guy or what,” a resident told Castanet. “No one knows if we have a maniac running around.”
