West Shore RCMP have cordoned off a portion of Thetis Lake to conduct an ongoing investigation.
According to a Tweet, police do not believe there is any danger to the public.
Unconfirmed reports suggest that there was a shooting in the area. A Tweet from a Saanich resident states that there is a “man down with [a] rifle lying beside him.”
HAPPENING NOW: Shots fired at Thetis Lake. Man down with rifle lying beside him. Crime Tape being put up & public asked to stay away at this time. I gotta ask, "What is going on around here lately?". #Code4 #Victoria #ThetisLake #Shotsfired #YYJ
