Two vehicles shot at near Fort Nelson

On Saturday, June 20, 2020, Fort Nelson RCMP were advised of a mischief to property involving firearms.

A highway paving crew reported sometime during the previous night one of their unoccupied vehicles had been fired at. The vehicle was parked at the end of a construction zone approximately 100 km north of Fort Nelson on Highway 97.

The second incident was discovered later the same day when police responded to a vehicle being found in the ditch at kilometer 590 on Highway 97. When police attended the crash site, the vehicle was unoccupied, however, there were multiple bullet holes in the vehicle. Investigators determined the crash had happened the day before and the driver had received a ride to Fort Nelson. The unoccupied vehicle was shot at some time after the driver had left the scene.

As both vehicles were in isolated areas with no business or residences nearby, the police are hoping the public can help.

If anyone has any information on this is asked to call the Fort Nelson RCMP at 250-774-2700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
