  • RCMP say B.C. shooting suspect in custody

VANDERHOOF, B.C. - Police say a suspect is in custody after officers responded to reports of a shooter at an RCMP detachment in northern British Columbia.

Cpl. Madonna Saunderson says there are no reported injuries at this time.

RCMP say they had received information about a person with a long gun targeting the detachment in Vanderhoof, west of Prince George, just after noon.

The person was then seen driving around the area.

A local emergency alert was issued and police asked residents to stay inside and lock their doors.

RCMP say a lone male suspect, considered armed and dangerous, was believed to be driving a white Ford pickup truck with an extended cab.

The alert was later cancelled and residents were told to return to their normal activities.
