A third suspect was arrested after an RCMP emergency response team converged on a home in the Caledonia Mobile Home Park on North Nechako Road just before 3 p.m. Thursday.

Witnesses said a team equipped with an armoured truck surrounded the unit and threw stun grenades into the building after nearby residents were evacuated. About a half hour after the first stun grenade, they entered the home.

Prince George RCMP credited "an intense and exhaustive investigation" into the shooting deaths of two males and the shooting of one other for the arrests. "Police are still looking for additional suspects who may be involved," RCMP added Both of the named suspects are known to the police and the courts.

According to court records, West was sentenced to 18 months probation in June for assault causing bodily harm and is scheduled to go to trial later this year on a count of aggravated assault from a different incident. Moore's criminal record is less extensive.

Names of the victims have not been released.
