New development in Shuswap drive-by killing
KELOWNA — RCMP are expected to reveal new information about a drive-by shooting in the small Shuswap community of Blind Bay that claimed the life of a Sorento man.
Nicholas Larsen, 24, was shot and killed as he drove down Blind Bay Road in June 2011. The shooter was in a passing car.
Area residents have speculated that the shooting was drug-related, but RCMP said at the time they didn’t believe the shooting was gang related. However, they did add that Larsen’s death was not a random attack.
RCMP are holding a news conference in Kelowna Monday morning dealing with a “significant development” in the Larsen case.
They say that Larsen’s family will be in attendance.
More details to come.
