DAWSON CREEK -- Three days after Dawson Creek police responded to a “suspicious incident” south of Rolla, the North District Major Crimes Unit is calling it “a suspected shooting.”

Police now say the possible victim involved is now considered to be a “missing person.”

Major Crimes said, “Preliminary efforts have been made to contact anyone believed to be in the area around the time of shots being heard. However, a 24-year-old man has not been located and is now considerd missing.”

A family member that owns the farm yard that is at the centre of the investigation says, a 9-1-1 call on Tuesday morning was to report a dead body on the property.

The family member said police told her, “a woman called 9-1-1 and said there’s a body outside that is laying on the ground and not moving. It’s probably dead.”

After police cordoned off and took control of the property, the family said another police officer told them, “there was a homicide and they are looking for a body.”

Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating Dave Daniel Domingo. He is described as:

  • Filipino male
  • 5’9
  • 240 lbs,
  • Brown eyes
  • Short brown hair

"We appreciate that there are significant rumors and speculation within the community given the police presence and the investigative work underway. While we have been able to determine that we are likely dealing with a shooting, we have nothing to indicate at this time there is an ongoing threat to the greater public or reason for concern. This does appear to be a concerning however is an isolated incident said Cpl Madonna Saunderson BC RCMP Communications.

It’s not yet clear what happened at the farm yard south of Rolla, but police have told the family, “He (the son) is responsible for what happens on his property.”

The Dawson Creek RCMP has referred the matter to the North District Major Crimes Unit.

On Wednesday, more than 26 hours after the initial call to police, CJDC TV asked the North District Major Crimes Unit about a possible homicide. The response was, “we have no information.”

We then asked North District Major Crimes Unit if the public is at risk. They refused to comment.

Neighbours tell CJDC TV News that police officers are going door-to-door asking for information and security camera footage.
