RCMP respond to Campbell River shootout
An active investigation remains ongoing after Campbell River RCMP responded to a complaint of shots fired Sunday in the Vancouver Island community.
Campbell River RCMP responded to a complaint of shots fired at 11:28 p.m. Sunday.
Multiple 9-1-1 calls from neighbours who heard shots and were able to guide officers to a specific residence.
All available police resources responded to the call and contained the area. Upon police arrival, a male and a female exited the residence, however a 16 year old male stayed inside.
The RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) was deployed along with the police service dog. Out of an abundance of caution, neighbours were temporarily evacuated from their homes.
At approximately 3 a.m., the male exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
At this time, this investigation is still active. All three involved are currently in police custody.
A 19-year-old Campbell River man, a 19-year-old Comox woman and a 16-year-old Campbell River man may be facing firearms related charges.
No one was hurt in this incident and police appreciate the public’s cooperation and assistance while this incident unfolded.
