Okanagan Falls residents report shooting Saturday night
RCMP swarmed a usually quiet neighborhood in Okanagan Falls on Saturday night after gunshots reportedly rang out.
Several residents posted on an Okanagan Falls News and Events Facebook page saying they heard gunshots near the corner of Maple Street and 10th Avenue around 10 p.m. Saturday night.
Resident Denise Krickemeyer says she was walking home when she heard sirens.
“We went to turn on our street and they blocked everything with a whole bunch of police cars, criminal gangs like blocking the whole road,” Krickemeyer said.
