Trail home invasion sees man seriously injured by rubber bullets
The Trail and Greater District RCMP responded to a report of a violent home invasion on Christmas Eve.
On Dec. 24, at 2:05 p.m., the Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report of a home invasion in which one man was shot with rubber bullets at a residence on the 700 block of Short Street in Trail.
Upon arrival, a number of people were located in and around the residence, including a 42-year-old man who was suffering from serious injuries. No one else was injured. Two masked suspects allegedly entered the residence and fired multiple rubber rounds at the man before fleeing the scene.
The man was taken to a local-area hospital for medical attention. The residence, and the injured man, are both known to police.
This incident appears to be targeted in nature and police do not believe that there is any ongoing threat to the greater public, says S/Sgt. Kris Clark, Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Trail and Greater District RCMP at 250-364-2566 or remain anonymous by calling Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
