A highway paving crew reported sometime during the previous night one of their unoccupied vehicles had been fired at. The vehicle was parked at the end of a construction zone approximately 100 km North of Fort Nelson on Highway 97.
The second incident was discovered later the same day when police responded to a vehicle being found in the ditch at kilometre 590 on highway 97. When police attended the crash site, the vehicle was unoccupied, however, there were multiple bullet holes in the vehicle.
