Vancouver, November 18: The city’s school district took to Twitter Friday morning to alert the public that RCMP were aware of a targeted incident.
“We have been advised that schools are not connected and can remain open. If a family is impacted directly, please take direction from RCMP,” reads the tweet by school district 58.
At this point, officials aren’t sharing the location of the targeted shooting or whether the suspect has been identified.
This is the second shooting incident in Merritt since Tuesday, when a series of early morning shootings saw 100 shots fired throughout the region. No injuries have emerged from either event so far.
