A string of shootings has plagued Prince George this week.
That gun violence continued Friday morning when a person in a home in the 1100 block of Vancouver Street was the apparent target of a gunman. Police responded to the scene at about 2 a.m. Friday and during their investigation found the house where at least one shot had been fired. The lone occupant of the residence was uninjured.
The incident happened about five hours after somebody opened fire in an apparent drive-by shooting which left multiple bullet holes in a house in the 400 block of Quinn Street South. Prince George RCMP Stagg Sgt. Chris Riddle said there were people were inside the home when it was attacked, at about 9 p.m. Thursday. There were no injuries.
That happened on the same day an apparent argument between three people on foot and two cyclists led to a man getting shot near the intersection of Upland Street and 20th Avenue. Police responded at about 9 p.m. and one of the pedestrians suffering from a single gunshot wound. The man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The first shooting of the week happened at about 3 a.m. Tuesday. A family of five in a duplex on McIntyre Crescent was the apparent target of a shooter who opened fire on the house. Nobody was injured in that incident.
