DAWSON CREEK -- A gun shot inside a Dawson Creek apartment building resulted in a bullet going through a wall into a neighbouring unit.

Police say just before midnight Thursday, a resident of the Upper Montney Estates called 911 to report a loud bang.

When police arrived at the scene, they secured the building. After receiving a search warrant, officers scoured inside and the outside of the apartment complex.

The K-9 unit was called to help track the suspect however the person managed to get away. Police believe the suspect was a visitor to the building.

There were no injuries reported. On Friday morning the Forensic Unit from Fort St. John was at the scene.

Police are asking anyone with CCTV or dash cam footage to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700.
