Bullet riddled fence at home on Coronation Avenue.
A Saturday night shooting on Coronation Avenue in Kelowna has left behind numerous bullet holes and a shattered glass door.
RCMP police vehicles were stationed outside the home in the downtown core, but no information has been provided to media.
One bullet went straight through the white picket fence in front of the home, another bullet can be seen going into the house on the side.
Yellow police caution tape is strung in the back of the house and glass is shattered on the floor where a front door used to be.
The next-door neighbour, who just lives feet away, said he was home when he heard loud banging at 9 p.m. on Saturday.
“I thought someone was trying to break in so I looked in the backyard and didn’t see anything so I kept watching TV and then heard another pop—almost like a firecracker.”
He continued watching TV, but 10 minutes later heard another pop.
“I came out for a smoke and I walked out front and there was a guy facing me out the glass window and he had his hands in the air and had a look on his face of urgency,” he said.
The two stared at each other for 40 seconds until he ran inside and called 911.
He tells Castanet he heard at least three gun shots between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
“I was on the phone outside with RCMP dispatch and I heard the side door shut or slam so I went inside and I looked out of the front door and didn’t see anyone go out the front.”
A car parked out front was riddled with three bullets, according to the neighbour.
The neighbour said he never saw an ambulance and police arrested a man in the alley.
Castanet has reached out to RCMP and are awaiting details.
