At 8:45 p.m. on April 25, 2022, the Kelowna RCMP responded to multiple 9-1-1 calls regarding an injured man at the intersection of Harvey Avenue and Gordon Drive. When officers arrived on scene, they located a 38-year-old man who had sustained injuries consistent with stab wounds. He was transported to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

A 28-year-old male passer-by was also injured in this incident. He sustained a minor injury in which he was transported to the hospital where he was treated and released.

The victims and suspect were not known to one another, states Cpl. Tammy Lobb, Media Relations Officer for the Kelowna RCMP.
