One person shot inside Winnipeg Street home

RCMP Winnipeg Street

A crazy afternoon on the streets of Penticton.

First...Calls came in to RCMP...and  Officers were sent out to a firearms incident  ..... in which one person was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It all happened yesterday around noon....Officers responded to a report of a man having been shot inside a home in the 400 block of Winnipeg Street.

Upon arrival, officers confirmed one male victim appeared to have been shot. 

The investigation led officers to believe an address on Maple Street was involved....which led to a heavy police presence at that residence. 

Around 5 pm...the subject in a standoff surrendered to police.
Homes and businesses in both areas were on lock down, as was nearby Queens Park Elementary.

If anyone has information related to this incident..... they can call Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
