No one was shot at the Ramada Hotel on Wednesday after bullets were reportedly fired in the courtyard, despite confirmation from RCMP that a man suffered an apparent gunshot wound.
Kelowna city councillor Maxine DeHart, who also works at the hotel, witnessed the event and said a man came running through the lobby after a series of gunshots rang out about 10:45 a.m.
“He tripped and fell running away from the bullets and hurt his elbow,” she said.
The man was treated for minor injuries by BC Emergency Health Services in the lobby and did not go to the hospital.
Police are now confirming that two men were targeted in the parking lot of the hotel by a single shooter; however, neither victim sustained injuries from the gunfire.
