Shots Fired In Prince George Detachment City cells

On July 12, 2022, Frontline Police officers of the Prince George RCMP responded to a report of a theft in the area of 15 Avenue and Victoria Street.

Police located the suspect a short distance away and arrested the man, who was found to be in possession of a fire arm and had an outstanding arrest warrant. He was transported to Prince George Detachments cells.

While being booked in, a physical altercation occurred during which bear spray was discharged and a police officer discharged their service pistol.

One police officer received minor injuries and the suspect was also injured in the altercation and received medical attention for those injuries.
