Neighbours recount daylight drive-by shooting in Vernon

Police have yet to release any information regarding reports of a drive-by shooting that occurred in Vernon on Friday afternoon.

The incident occurred along the 4100 block of 24th Avenue at approximately 4:30 p.m.

One resident said a bullet hit his truck, with the round going through one side of the box and into the other side.

According to Brad Albrecht, he was raking his front lawn shortly around 4:30 p.m. when he heard a “pop-pop-pop. It sounded like fireworks or whatever. I kind of looked up and saw a car zipping down towards 43rd Street.”

Albrecht said he didn’t think anything of it until he realized those were gunshots, “and my neighbor came over, running, confirming it was gunshots.”

Albrecht said there were shell casings on 24th Avenue and in a neighbour’s driveway. He said his truck was parked along the road, where a bullet hit the box.

Not long after, he said police showed up.
