GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – Police in Grande Prairie are investigating a firearm-incident that took place on the city’s west side yesterday.

On Wednesday, July 6th at approximately 2:30 p.m., the RCMP received a report of shots fired at a business. After a confrontation inside of the business, a lone male suspect left the area, and returned driving in a vehicle a short time later. The suspect was then seen brandishing a firearm, firing it in the direction of the business’ patrons.

The suspect fled the scene a second time and engaged in a police pursuit which ended several blocks away. The man was arrested and is currently in police custody.

No one was harmed. The investigation is on-going.

If you have any information about the incident, you’re asked to call the Grande Prairie RCMP detachment, or call Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS.
