The victim of the shooting remains in hospital

The Kelowna RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the owners of a white sedan that was allegedly involved in a shooting.

The police are currently conducting an investigation into the Jan. 31 shooting of a 49-year-old Kelowna man. The shooting, which took place inside a private residence along Baron Road in Kelowna, sent the victim to hospital in cardiac arrest and suffering from critical injuries. That victim continues to recover from those injuries, according to the RCMP in a news release.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who has knowledge of who would have been operating the Chevolet Malibu or an occupant inside that suspect vehicle on the night of the Baron Road shooting.
