"Initial indications were that two males with firearms shot at the victim and fled in a waiting vehicle," RCMP said. "All attempts to locate the suspects and the vehicle have been negative so far."

However, a security camera caught images of the getaway car and were released by RCMP. It is described as a blue older-model four-door full-size sedan.

The suspects were only described as wearing dark clothing with bandanas over their faces.

RCMP received "multiple 911 calls" of shots fired at the time.

Anyone who may have information on the incident is asked to call Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300. Tips can be also provided anonymously at Crime Stoppers by phone, 1-800-222-8477, online at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca, or by texting CRIMES using keyword “pgtips.”
