Local man arrested after shot fired

Accused held in custody until court

A Boston Bar man is facing a lengthy list of charges after allegedly shooting off a firearm during a heated argument with his girlfriend.

John Christopher Campbell, 46, has been charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, unsafe storage of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm and breach of probation.

On October 1, at 2 p.m., Hope RCMP received a report from a woman stating that her boyfriend shot at her with a gun.

The woman told police that shortly after midnight she dropped off her boyfriend at his residence on the Trans Canada Highway.  She said they got into an argument then he produced and discharged a firearm.

The following afternoon, Campbell was arrested at his residence for attempted murder.

A search warrant was executed on Campbell’s residence and a firearm was located in the residence and seized by police along with several other exhibits including ammunition and spent casings.

“Investigators have been working diligently on this matter,” said Staff Sergeant Suki Manj, detachment commander of Hope/Boston Bar.  “The Chilliwack Serious Crime Unit has assisted us with this ongoing investigation.”

Campbell remains in custody until his next appearance on October 11, 2011.
