Excitement in Princeton

I slept through it.

Hostage Situation Ends Peacefully

On Sunday, March 25, 2007 at approximately 9:30 pm, RCMP checked a vehicle that was stopped in a pull out on Hwy 3 approximately 8 km west of Hedley, B.C. The vehicle was found to be associated to a male wanted on a Canada Wide Warrant out of Calgary, Alberta. The male was considered armed and dangerous. There were other RCMP Units in the area dealing with an unrelated matter that were alerted. The male driver and lone occupant of the vehicle quickly departed the pull out with the arrival of the first RCMP member. The RCMP member noted the male to have a handgun. The vehicle was followed and refused to stop for police. RCMP set up a spike belt on Hwy 3 approximately 2 km east of Princeton. The suspect vehicle, a late model Chev Blazer drove over the spike belt and continued on into Princeton on flat tires, still refusing to stop. RCMP continued to follow the vehicle and attempted to contain the vehicle on the highway in Princeton at which point the vehicle struck a sign post in front of the Esso on Hwy 3 in Princeton at 10:05 pm. When the male exited the vehicle, he was seen with a handgun, running towards the Esso. Police officers at the scene were concerned for the safety of the public, fired upon the male, who suffered a non life threatening injury to his arm..
The male grabbed a 60 year old male that had come out into the parking lot and took him back inside. Also inside was the 45 year old female employee. The male suspect allowed the female employee to leave at approximately 10:10 PM, but kept the 60 year old male inside. Hwy 3 was closed to traffic to ensure the safety of the public. RCMP successfully negotiated the release of the 60 year old male at 2:45 AM. . The suspect male, 26 years of age, peacefully surrendered to RCMP at 5:35 AM and was taken to Princeton Hospital for medical treatment. A 45 year old male customer was also found hiding inside the store at this time. The male suspect has been since transported to Penticton Regional Hospital for follow up treatment.

No I did not know anyone involved. If it was not for the news and all the investigators and the Jimmy still sitting there I probably would not have even known about it.

Actually it was just built, not even a year there yet. The Esso is on one side of the building and the other side is still empty, and yes for a while there was talk of a Tim Hortons going in there.
