Man charged after shots fired in apartment, damaging neighbouring suites

OLIVER, B.C. — Police say a man has been charged after shots were fired in an apartment, causing damage to several neighbouring suites.

RCMP in Oliver, B.C., say they were contacted by a tenant of the three-storey building on Monday at 2 p.m. because he noticed stuffing coming from a hole in a cushion that was beside him after hearing a loud bang.

They say the complainant lived on the second floor of the building and he believed the bang came from the apartment below him.

The Mounties say they searched the lower-floor apartment and allegedly found spent .22-calibre casings and a rifle, as well as multiple holes in the ceiling and walls.

RCMP say there is no reason to believe tenants of the building were targeted, but they allege the rifle was fired indiscriminately into the ceiling and walls.

Police say 30-year-old Daniel Khafizov has been charged with several firearms offences.
