VANCOUVER – Fort St. John RCMP say a 60-year-old woman was found dead and a 64-year-old man was found injured in a home Tuesday afternoon.

Police are not releasing any identities at this time but say they believe this is not a random attack as the two people knew each other.

Officers were called to the 10,000 block of 105 Avenue in Fort St. John at about 1:30 p.m. after receiving a complaint of a man with a gun. They set up a perimeter around the home and discovered the woman dead inside.

The 60-year-old man, believed to be from Manitoba, was taken to hospital for treatment.

This investigation is currently being handled by the North District RCMP Major Crime Unit (MCU) and is in its preliminary stages.

Anyone who may have information about this incident is asked to contact the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8140.
