Fort St. John RCMP release image of suspect vehicle

RCMP are seeking the public's help in identifying and tracking down a suspect vehicle involved in a targeted drive-by shooting at a home in Fort St. John early Friday morning.

Several shots were fired at a home in the 8600 block of 74 Street at 87 Avenue around 4:30 a.m. on March 24. No injuries were reported.

RCMP on Saturday released a surveillance image of the suspect vehicle, described as a black or dark mid-2000 Volkswagen Jetta with what police say appears to be a dark front passenger side tire rim.

Police say the vehicle departed the 8600 block of 74 Street by turning westbound onto 87 Avenue.

“Though the investigation is still in the early stages, it has been determined this was a targeted incident as the inhabitants of the residence are known to police,” said Cst. Chad Neustater with the Fort St. John RCMP in an update.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have security camera footage of the area between 4:20 a.m. and 4:26 a.m. on March 24, to review their footage and report any relevant information.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 250-787-8100, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
