RCMP release new photos in search for suspect in shooting of cyclist on B.C. highway Add to ...

RCMP continue to seek the public’s assistance in a shooting incident in B.C. Sunday that injured a 59-year-old cyclist.

The shooting took place around 1 a.m. Sunday. A cyclist taking part in the Cache Creek 600, an endurance cycling event, was shot about three kilometres south of Spences Bridge, a small community between Vancouver and Cache Creek on Highway 1.

The cyclist and his bicycle were both struck once before the suspect fled the scene in what is believed to be a pickup truck, according to the RCMP. The victim was discovered by other cyclists taking part in the event.

The man’s injuries were described as serious but not life-threatening. Police are asking for help to identify a suspect in what they are describing as a “seemingly random” incident.

See below for photos of the crime scene and the bicycle released by RCMP Tuesday.
