Officers immediately flooded the area and were assisted by RCMP Air Services but the suspect was not located.

An examination of the scene revealed that a window of a residence had been shot several times with pellets from a BB gun.

“At this time we do not believe there were any injuries as a result of this incident,” says Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP. “We are still looking to identify the woman believed to have been involved.”

The suspect is described as a Caucasian woman in her 30s or 40s. She had darker blonde shoulder-length hair and was wearing a blue sundress.
