The Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen (PSOS) RCMP are seeking assistance in locating a suspect in a shooting investigation.

On July 1st, 2022 at 6:52 p.m., the Osoyoos RCMP responded to a shooting on the east side of Osoyoos Lake at an area frequented by locals and tourists known as White Sands on Osoyoos Indian Band land. A 22 year-old male from Maple Ridge, BC was with friends getting ready to watch the Canada Day fireworks when a male from another group started an altercation before pulling out a gun, firing multiple rounds and shooting the victim before fleeing the area. The victim received non-life threatening injuries.

The PSOS RCMP are reviewing all evidence to determine whether there is also a link to two shootings in Penticton on June 26, 2022 and June 28, 2022.

The PSOS RCMP is seeking the public’s help in locating 29 year-old Steven Marlo Gallagher, who is being considered armed and dangerous and a suspect in this shooting.
