Shooting Suspect Released

The man arrested after another man was shot dead in Penticton Wednesday morning has been released from custody. 

Penticton RCMP Corporal Don Wrigglesworth says charges have not been laid against the man.

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

The shooting happened near the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The identity of the victim has not been released.
