Campbell River RCMP are investigating a double shooting Tuesday night that left one man dead.

Police said the shooting took place at Robron Road and Upland Drive area. No specific time frame was released.

Campbell River RCMP confirmed one woman is in hospital after sustaining gunshot wounds, and a man is dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police would not confirm at this time if the shooting was a murder-suicide attempt.

“There is no ongoing threat to public safety,” said Campbell River RCMP media liaison Cst. Maury Tyre.

“Our officers will be continuing the investigation through the night and we will provide the public with further information when it is prudent to do so.”

Victim services have been called in to help assist the families involved. Police are asking that people to avoid discussing or posting photos about the incident on social media channels “in order to allow families to have time to process and privately grieve.”
