Tuesday (August 12) at 1:37 p.m. the Ft St John RCMP received a third party complaint of a man with a gun in the 10,000 block of 105th Ave in Fort St. John.

Officers immediately attended the area and set up a perimeter for public safety.

When officers entered the building, they discovered a 64-year-old Fort St. John woman who was deceased and a 60-year-old man, believed to be from Manitoba, was suffering from injuries. 

The man was taken to hospital for treatment.  

Police believe this is not a random act as the two individuals knew each other. 

This investigation is currently being handled by the North District RCMP Major Crime Unit (MCU) and is in its preliminary stages. More information may be released once additional details can be confirmed.

The name of the deceased is not being released in order to ensure notification of next of kin.

Anyone who may have information about this incident is asked to contact the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8140.
