Accused Okanagan shooter going to trial

Man died following incidents in Coldstream and at Vernon hotel in February

A man arrested in connection with a February shooting in Vernon that left one man dead will have his case heard in provincial court in Vernon.

A pre-trial conference in the matter has been scheduled for July, followed by a one-day preliminary inquiry Dec. 9. If enough evidence is found to go ahead with a trial, that has been scheduled for two days, Dec. 10 and 11.

On Friday, Feb. 8, Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP received a report of a break-and-enter in progress at a residence in the 9800 block of Park Lane in Lavington at around 1 a.m. It was reported there were possible shots fired resulting in one occupant of the home sustaining non-life-threatening injuries.
