Shooting outside Naramata

One man is in the hospital with gunshot wounds and another is in custody after a shooting just outside the Naramata border Monday night.

A man is being treated for gunshot wounds after a shooting that took place near the border of Naramata and Penticton.

One man is in custody after Penticton RCMP responded to reports of shots fired around 10:30 p.m. Monday at a residence on Lindsay Road.

Police said both males were known to each other and the shooting was an isolated incident not related to any gang activity. Nearby neighbour Phil Quinn said he hasn’t seen anything like this in his 20 years living in the area.

“There was a  lot of action last night. A lot of vehicles, a lot of lights on. We didn’t really know what was going on,” Quinn said.

He said that the two men who rented the top floor of the residence police were seen investigating Tuesday seemed to be good friends.

“They come by quite often. They were always quite happy. They stick together a lot and they seem to be really good friends,” Quinn said.  “It’s quite surprising. They seem really happy all the time so I’m quite shocked actually that something happened.”

He saw the two men earlier that night on a beach nearby on the property. The two did not seem to be in a dispute according to Quinn.

“I didn’t hear anything I was actually working quite late down at the beach,” Quinn said. “I actually saw them down there around nine o’clock, eight o’clock last night. They were chummin’ down there having a few beers.”

“It’s a really quiet area. There’s only the two houses,” Quinn said. “It’s really, really weird.”

Quinn said the two have lived at the residence for the past couple years, and he believes they worked in the oilfield in Alberta.

People were seen taking dogs away from the residence on Tuesday. They were friends of the residents according to police.
