In just under 10 days, Prince George has experienced half-a-dozen shootings and a house fire all related to gang violence.
Prince George RCMP say these incidents are connected to two rival groups involved in the drug trade.
In all cases, Mounties explain those that were being targeted are not co-operating with the investigations.
However, RCMP says one incident, the Upland Street shooting involving a verbal altercation between a group of three people and two men on bikes, is not linked to the recent gang violence.

Police add resources are being allocated in hopes of stopping the ongoing dispute in order to ensure the community’s safety.
