Child shot in Steveston - News1130

RICHMOND (NEWS1130) - A child has been taken to the hospital after a shooting in the Steveston area.

There's no word on the child's age or condition.

Mounties are expected to be at Whistler Court near Steveston Highway and Gilbert Road through the afternoon.


...except Gilbert @ Steveston Hwy isn't exactly in "Steveston" but anyway...

5 wounded in Kelowna, B.C., shooting - British Columbia - CBC News

Five people were shot outside a hotel and casino in Kelowna just before 3 p.m. PT on Sunday.

The five, including one in critical condition, have been taken to hospital following the incident outside 1300 Water Street in downtown Kelowna, the British Columbia Ambulance Service said.

Wounds to the other four were less serious, the service said.

Eddie Shortidge of Calgary is visiting Kelowna and heard the shots fired.

"It was like two bursts of submachine-gun fire and then that was it," he said. "I have a bit of a military background so I knew what it was straight away."
The apparent targets of the shooting were in a white vehicle. Five people, one of them critically injured, were taken to hospital. The apparent targets of the shooting were in a white vehicle. Five people, one of them critically injured, were taken to hospital. (CBC)

RCMP are looking for the suspects.

Shooting outside of a casino... I"m surprised we don't hear about this more often. Just another case where it shows how useless the gun registry is in "preventing crime, making the public safer for all".

One dead, several hurt in shooting outside Kelowna Casino

Six people were taken to hospital Sunday after a daylight shooting outside the Lake City Casino in Kelowna that has left one of the victims dead.

B.C. Ambulance spokeswoman Kelsie Carwithen confirmed that paramedics responded to a call in the 1300-block of Water Street at 3 p.m., and transported six patients - one in critical condition - to Kelowna General Hospital.

The victims are believed to have been inside a vehicle that was shot shortly after it pulled into the casino parking lot.

One witness said the weapon used was an AK-47, with up to 30 rounds being fired. Photos from the scene show a white, four-door vehicle with at least five bullet holes.

Photos from the scene also show paramedics tending to a male victim with closely cropped, dark brown hair and large, coloured tattoos on his arms and chest. He appeared to have wounds on his left arm and leg.

Another victim was a woman with blonde hair.

It is believed there was only one shooter, who was in a vehicle following the victim’s vehicle prior to the attack.

Neither the police nor casino have commented on the shooting.

It sucks when there's news about shooting incidents, people's first reaction is "ban guns! omg! people shouldn't own guns! guns are bad!" without giving it some more thoughts on this issue... 99.99999999% of legal gun owners in Canada don't use their guns for criminal activities, yet the government (at least the liberals) kept tightening control on legal gun ownership. Umm, last time I checked, criminals don't care about laws so any form of regulation on legal gun ownership is targeting the WRONG crowd.

I'd be interested to know more details about this shooting, though. Sounds like illegal guns (not registered, automatic) were used according to that witness.

If only he was able to arm himself to protect his life... thankfully he wasn't critically wounded.

When are people in Canada, espeically politicians and police, going to realize that the right to protect yourself with deadly force is the BEST deterrent for potential crimes? Stats for the US have shown that potential crimes have been averted when the victims simply pulls a gun on the attackers? Not even a need to fire a shot!

Bacon brother among six injured in Kelowna shooting: sources
News1130 Staff Aug 14, 2011 15:44:35 PM

KELOWNA (NEWS1130) - News1130 has learned Jonathan Bacon is among the six people injured in a mass shooting in Kelowna, according to inside sources.

Police have not confirmed any details, and the Bacon family's lawyer, Kimberly Eldred, has refused to comment.

Witnesses say men dressed in black wearing face masks opened fire with an automatic weapon on a vehicle near the Lake City Casino in Kelowna around 3 p.m., injuring six people.

Kelsey Carwithen of the British Columbia Ambulance Service says at least one person suffered serious injuries.

News1130 spoke with Kelowna reporter James Moore of AM 1150 radio, who was on the scene on Water Street speaking to witnesses.

"Somebody saw men dressed in black, in black face masks, with automatic weapons open fire on a small, white vehicle in front of the casino," he says.

"Right now, people are telling me that those men were seen leaving the scene in a dark-coloured SUV, and police are looking for that right now."

The whole area is roped off with yellow tape, and was attended by police, fire crews and ambulances.
