Attempted murder charges for man at Williams Lake Stampede shooting

Two people shot at the Williams Lake stampede grounds Sunday afternoon and one man in custody.

The BC Prosecution Service has stated that Jordell Anthony Sellars is being prosecuted on two counts: one of attempted murder and one of discharging a firearm with the intent to harm life.

On July 11, he will be in court again.

The Williams Lake RCMP released an update on the investigation into the shooting that compelled hundreds of people to leave the stampede grounds in a statement on Monday.

“Two individuals were injured during this and were taken to hospital for medical treatment. Both people are expected to survive their injuries,” the statement reads.

“While police believe this to be a targeted shooting one innocent bystander was injured.”

Victims of the shooting have not been identified and police didn’t release any details about their injuries but both people are expected to survive their injuries.

People who left their belongings behind will be permitted to retrieve them, according to the City of Williams Lake, but they must wait until cops give the okay.

“The City of Williams Lake is saddened to hear of the incident at the Stampede Grounds on Sunday afternoon. As the investigation continues, we will be sharing supports and information as it becomes available. Many thanks to the Stampede Association and the RCMP for their quick and effective response.” a statement on their Facebook page reads.
