Saunderson says one of the victims was not specifically targeted.

“While we believe this to be a targeted shooting, one of the victims was an innocent bystander and not related to anything going on.”

A family member has confirmed that the innocent bystander was shot in the heel while waiting in line for some food in behind the grandstand.

Saunderson says while one person is in police custody, charges have not yet been laid.

She says multiple units were called to support Williams Lake, including North District Major Crime.   However, Williams Lake General Investigation Section has conduct of the investigation.

Anyone with information, dash cam or other video and has not yet spoken with police, is asked to call the Williams Lake RCMP at (250) 392-6211.
