RCMP are currently investigating two young offenders who shot trick-or-treating teenagers with an airsoft gun on Halloween night.

Columbia Valley RCMP Staff Sgt. Marko Shehovac said that two victims have come forward so far, both teenagers, and that they had minor injuries in the form of marks on their face.

“The potential for a more serious incident could’ve been there,” Shehovac said.

RCMP are in the process of interviewing the victims and their parents, and are also speaking with the parents of the accused.

Shehovac said the two youth were not previously known to police and, from his understanding, had never been in this kind of trouble before.

That being said, the RCMP are considering either laying charges, which could include assault causing bodily harm, or looking at restorative justice options.
