Salmon Arm Shooting Update
One man has been charged with first degree murder in Sunday's shooting in Salmon Arm.
25-year-old Matrix Gathergood remains in custody after one man was killed while a second is in stable condition. The shooting happened during a service at the Church of Christ about 10:30 Sunday morning.
The man who was killed has been identified as 78 year old Gord Parmenter, a father four. The Salmon Arm man who took in troubled teens who had ``nowhere else to go,'' is being remembered as a kind, supportive foster parent. A former foster son has identified Parmenter as the man shot to death when the man walked into the non-denominational church and opened fire. The foster son, who can't be identified, says he would not be in college, or have discovered his love of music without Parmenter's guidance.
