Vernon North Okanagan RCMP received a report of an assault with a weapon at a residence on the 8500 block of Clerke Road in Coldstream on January 17th at 5:32 a.m.
On arrival police located two people deceased inside the home, a man suffering from potentially life-threatening injuries, and a fourth man who was taken into custody. The injured man was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Investigators said the deaths are deemed to be suspicious and BC RCMP SED MCU has taken conduct of the investigation. S/Sgt Kris Clark of the BC RCMP said
“The initial investigation leads us to believe that this was an isolated incident and there is no ongoing risk to the public.”
Investigators also noted that they are aware of a vehicle that was discovered burning at another location. At this time no linkage has been established between the two events but the investigation is in its infancy and investigators will be looking at all avenues.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the BC RCMP SED MCU information line at 1-877-987-8477.
