Three avoid injury as truck hit by shotgun blast

No one was injured when the driver of a quad fired a shotgun at a truck with three occupants inside it last week.

Rock Mountain House RCMP are investigating the shooting on the Sunchild/O’Chiese Reserve, which is located 45 minutes northwest of Rocky Mountain House.

According to the RCMP, officers were dispatched to the reserve at 1 p.m. on Nov. 24 to respond to a complaint that occurred 12 hours prior.

It was reported that at 1 a.m., a male and two passengers were leaving a dance on the O’Chiese Reserve in the male’s truck. As they were leaving, a quad came up behind the vehicle and fired a single shot from what police believe to be a shotgun.

While no people were injured in the shooting, the truck was damaged.

Due to the age of the occupants of the truck, their identities are not being released by the police.

The case is under investigation and additional information will be released as it becomes available.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP request the public’s assistance in solving this crime. Anyone with information is asked to call the detachment at 403-845-2882 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
