Penticton shooting suspect released from custody

The man arrested in connection to a fatal shooting in Penticton yesterday has been released from custody without charge.

Penticton RCMP Corporal Don Wrigglesworth would not give more details, other than to say they are still investigating the incident by interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence.

“This was an isolated event and not a random act as both parties were known to each other.  We do not feel the public is at risk,” he said “All of our police resources remain fully engaged in this ongoing investigation.”

One man died after the shooting yesterday morning near the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The identity of the victim has not been released.
