A preliminary hearing is underway in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops for two men accused of murder in the shooting death of a 24-year-old man in Blind Bay.

Nick Larsen, 24, died on June 1, 2011, following what RCMP said was a targeted attack stemming from a dispute between two groups of men several hours earlier. In July 2014, Kelowna’s major crime section announced it arrested two men.

Williams Lake resident Jeremy Wayne Davis, 25, and Jordan Larry Barnes, a 28-year-old from Mission, each face a single count of second-degree murder.

The trial is set to begin on March 7.

Police said Larsen, 24, was shot while travelling as a passenger in a friend’s vehicle on a Blind Bay road.

Police said multiple bullets were fired at the car in which Larsen travelled.
