On June 17th, 2016, Westshore RCMP were conducting inquiries at a local residence in an attempt to locate the two outstanding suspects involved in the shooting in Sooke, BC on Wednesday evening.
While at a residence, two individuals believed to be the suspects ran from the property and a large scale search was conducted. Due to the large wooded rural area around Thetus Lake, the search was unsuccessful.
